Homework Help: Organic Chemistry

Posted by Angela on Tuesday, September 9, 2008 at 4:24pm.

I'm a beginner in the subject. It's a category that is overviewed in my AP Chem class. I need some help understanding the following:


dimethyl-n-butylmethane
diethylmethylmethane
diethyldimethylmethane
trimethylisobutylmethane
diethylisopropylmethane
dimethylisopropylmethane

...to be continued.

Basically, I understand the ethyl, methyl, butyl, and methane compounds on their own, but I don't know how to contruct them. From there, I might be able to find each isomer and use the IUPAC nomenclature to name them. We were introduced to the subject in class, given homework, and just sort of expected to do it. I'm very lost, and starting to doubt my understanding of chemistry.

Help?
