Name the following hydrocarbons.

A) CH3-CH2-CH-CH2-CH2-CH3
|
CH3

I don't know if this will show up correctly after I post. But the CH3 at the bottom is supposed to be under the CH. I don`t get how to name. I counted up all the hydrocarbons, and I came up with C7H16, so I thought it would be heptane, but its not.

  1. you count the longest chain so it will be the carbon chain of six. so hexane and then you have CH3 attached so it would be MethylHexane i believe.

  2. oh then when you number your chain. CH is number 3. SO you would call the organic compound.....
    3-MethylHexane
