Textbook Problem

One of the structural isomers with the formula C9H20 has the name 3-ethyl-2-methylhexane. Draw its structure. Draw and name another structural isomer of C9H20 in which there is a five-carbon chain.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The structure of structural isomer of the given alkane C9H20 which has systematic name 3-ethyl-2-methylhexane has to be drawn. Another structural isomer of C9H20 which has longest five carbon chain has to be drawn and its systematic name has to be written .

Concept introduction:

Systematic Name: It is a standardized name given for a chemical compound in systematic manner. Any organic molecule can be named by using IUPAC (International Union for Pure and applied chemistry) rules. IUPAC name consists of three parts in major namely Prefix suffix and root word.

Prefix represents the substituent present in the molecule. It can be any alkyl group and carboxy, amino, cyano etc…

Suffix represents the substituent present in the molecule. It can be any alkene, alkyne, alcohol, carboxylic acid...

Root word represents the longest continuous carbon skeleton present in the organic molecule.

When a molecule consists of cyclic structure, the root word of the molecule is prefixed with cyclo.

IUPAC naming for Alkane:

Name the main chain: Find the longest carbon chain and name the chain according to the number of carbon atoms it contains; is also the suffix part of the name.

Number the carbon atoms in the main chain: The carbons are numbered, in which the substituents must get lowest possible numbers.

Identify the substituents, and number each: The number at where substituents are present has to be noted. The substituents written as prefix.

Write the names as a single word: Use the hyphen to separate the numbers from the different prefix; commas to separate numbers. If two or more different substituents are present, arrange them in alphabetical order. If two or more identical substituents are present, use prefixes di-, tri-, tetra-, but this particular prefix should not be used for alphabetizing purpose.

Isomersim: Compounds having same molecular formula but exhibit different structures called isomers.This phenomenon is known as isomersim

Structural Isomers are the possible structures of a molecule with same molecular formula but have different arrangements of bonds and atoms. For a single molecular formula of alkanes higher than propane different arrangements of atoms can give a different structure.

Explanation
  • The structure of the given systematic name with molecular formula is drawn. The parent chain has name hexane that means it has six carbon atoms in longest chain. So draw a linear chain with six carbon atoms.

  

As it have two side chains one methyl group at position 2 and second ethyl group at position 3. Therefore structure of the given alkane will be written as follows.
