. When naming alkanes, find the longest continuous chain of carbon atoms. This chain (called the ______ chain) determines the base alkane name.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Find out how the longest continuous chain of carbon atoms is called in an alkane is used to determine the base name of alkanes.

Concept Introduction:

The longest continuous chain of carbon atoms in an alkane is called the parent chain which is used as the base in the naming of alkanes. In naming branched alkanes, the parent chain needs to be identified and then the carbon atoms that branches out from the parent chain needs to be included in the naming of the alkane alphabetically.

Explanation

The longest continuous chain of carbon atoms in an alkane is called the parent chain which is used as the base in the naming of alkanes. In naming branched alkanes, the parent chain needs to be identified and then the carbon atoms that branches out from the parent chain needs to be included in the naming of the alkane alphabetically...
