Priority when Naming

Postby melissapasao1B » Thu Mar 16, 2017 1:53 pm

Can someone please specify the order in which what gets priority when naming?

Is it

1. Functional groups
2. Double/triple bonds
3. Substituents

You are correct. There is priority within the functional groups, but I'm not sure if Dr. Lavelle would give us two different functional groups attached to the same parent chain.

First functional groups, then double/triple bonds and then substituents. So you're correct.

Dr. Lavelle has stated he wouldn't give us 2 functional groups. See the forum below for verification.
