Question 2.26 in Organic textbook

Postby Jocelyn_Limas_2G » Thu Mar 16, 2017 8:20 pm

For Question 2.26 (Page 98), I had written the answer as 3,3-dimethylpentan-2-one , but the answer says 3,3-dimethyl-2-pentanone. Would my answer be incorrect, or is it alright either way? Thanks!

Your answer is correct as well! These are the two ways to designate a ketone.

Well done.
