Homework Help: organic chemistry!

Posted by michelle on Wednesday, December 27, 2006 at 7:29pm.

Just wanted to know if I have named the following compounds correctly..and wanted to know if there are any short-hand or easier methods of naming organic compounds because they are a bit confusing!I tried drawing structural formulas for the following as well..I don't think most of them are right...

1) CH3CH2CH2CH(CH3)CH3 (2-propylpentane)

2) CH3CH(C2H5)CH2CH3 (3-ethylbutane)


4)CH3CH2CH2CH2OH (propylbutanol)

(propylpentanoic acid)

6) CH2=C(CH3)CH2CH(CH3)CH3

7) (CH3)2CHCl (chloropropane)

8) CH3C(CH3)2CH2C(CH3)2CH2CH2CH3

9) CH3C(CH3)2CH=C(CH3)CH2CH3

10) CH3C(triple bond)CCH3 (methylbutyne)

Please let me know if I am doing this right..thanks..

1. 2-methylpentane
3. 1,4-dichloroheptane
6. 2,4-dimethylpentene
7. (not sure about this one) t-chlorobutyl
9. 2,4-trimethylhexene

-CH3 substituent is methyl not propyl.

number 9: it is an alkene, so it should have a "ene" on the end, not "ane"

Yes if it is an alkene it should have an "ene" at the end not an "ane".
