Homework Help: Naming alkanes

Posted by DrBob222 on Wednesday, November 29, 2006 at 11:04pm.

Its been a long time since I did this but I believe you pick the longest chain. If there are double and triple bonds involved, pick the longest chain that contains the double bond plus single bonds to go with it (but that is for alkenes isn't it?)

When naming alkanes do you choose the path with the most constituents or the least?

Thanks from Sheryl
