Aldehyde Numbering

Postby Camryn Marshall 1C » Tue Mar 08, 2016 8:15 pm

In the O-chem book it says that because the aldehyde is always on the first carbon, numbering isnt necessary. For example, propanal would not be propan-1-al. However if we put the second one on a test just to be safe would that be counted as wrong?

No that would not be counted as wrong, although excessive that is the correct numbering.
