Step 2

The IUPAC rules can be summarized as given below;

  • Assign the longest carbon chain as parent chain.
  • Assign the numbering to all carbon atoms in such a way that the bonded side chains and functional group get least possible number.
  • The alkyl groups and some functional groups like halogen, nitro always comes as prefix.
  • The root name represents the number of carbon atoms in the parent chain of the molecule.
  • The root name must be followed by suffix.
  • Primary suffix indicates the single, double and triple bond in the molecule. Hence they can be –ane, -ene and –yne.
  • The secondary suffix represents the functional group that is bonded on the parent chain of the molecule.
