Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Jakob on Monday, May 31, 2010 at 5:08pm.

Why is this Alkene structure:

CH3 - CH = C - CH3
|
Cl

called 3, chloro - 2, butene

and not 2, chloro - 2, butene?

I thought that the counting starts at the end closes to the first substituent? Wouldn't that make it start from the right?

Thanks!
