Naming functional groups

Postby 504594108 » Mon Mar 07, 2016 4:24 pm

When a molecule has both a carboxylic acid and the question is asking you to name all the functional groups, do you have to state alcohol and carbonyl or can you just say carboxylic acid?

Always state it as the carboxylic acid functional group.
