Naming Order (Iso)

Postby Arie Hakimi 1L » Sat Mar 18, 2017 3:28 pm

Is the prefix "iso" included if we are listing a name alphabetically?

For example, would a molecule be called:

1,1-dimethyl-2-isopropyl-cyclopentane
OR
2-isopropyl-1,1-dimethyl-cyclopentane

In the solutions manual it states that the second way of writing it is correct.

Yes, Iso- is included for alphabetical order, as is Neo-. Di- is not.
