Primary, Secondary, Tertiary Naming

Postby stephanieyang_3F » Mon Mar 13, 2017 2:55 pm

For some functional groups like for example amines, in what scenario would we have to specify the functional group attached as a primary, secondary, tertiary etc functional group? Is it only when we're asked to identify what kind of functional group is attached?

Yes, I believe that you only have to specify primary, secondary, or tertiary when asked what functional group is attached, just to be as specific as possible.
