chemistry quick question
posted by michelle .
I need help with something and can't find this anywhere online. my structure looks like this
So that OH looks like it is on a ethyl group. I need to write the IUPAC name and I wrote 3-methyl-4-heptanol but realized my mistake as that would indicate OH is on a methyl group. How do I express it as a ethyl group?
...just change the methyl part to ethyl.... 2-ethyl-4-heptanol!
i just realized after entering my question my structure did not stay the way I wanted it to. the CH2 and OH are supposed to be over the 4th carbon in the chain and the CH3 is supposed to be under the 3rd.
