where woudl i put the propyl in 2-propyl benzoate? i thought the propyl had to be attactched to the O and wouldnt that just be 1-propyl not 2?
your OO is on the number 1 carbon on the benzene, next to it attach the propyl to that carbon.
No, the propyl is not attached to the O.
see this as an example (not benzoate)
so would the benzene ring spot 1 have a double bonded O and a single bonded OH connected to it?
