How does priority shift after the first priority has been completed?

Postby Flamingos 3L » Fri Mar 17, 2017 10:36 pm

What would be the priority followed after we completed one of them? Say we know where to start our first number due to a functional group, but then there is a conflict between making a double bond smaller numbered vs making 2 substituents shorter numbered. Would priority follow down the chain of functional groups >bonds>halogens>substituents or would it be focused on making the next overall number the smallest? (Say position 2 for a double substituent vs position 3 for a double bond)

It would go down the priority chain.

functional groups > double and triple bonds > halogens > alkyl groups
