Tert vs. Neo

Postby Andrew Ghaly 3H » Sun Mar 06, 2016 2:16 pm

What exactly is the difference between tert and neo. I know tert is has 3 (4 including the one from the main chain) carbons attached to the connecting carbon, but neo also has 3 methyls connected to the 2nd to last carbon in the substituent. Can they be used for the same structure?
