I know the following are alcohols. Are the primary, secondary or tertiary and what is the IUPAC name.

1. CH3CHCH2CH3
.......|
.......OH (OH falls directly underneath the "CH"

2. CH3CH2-O-hexagon shape (I can't draw this out)

3. CH3 which is branched down to CH-CH2-CH2-OH which has CH3 again underneath and branched out

  • Chemistry -

    1 is a secondary alcohol.
    2 is not an alcohol since it has no C-OH group. They way you have it drawn it is an ether.
    I can't tell what three is.
