Name each alkyne:

Chapter 6, Problem 47E, Name each alkyne:

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Each of the given alkyne compound is to be named.

Concept Introduction:

Hydrocarbons are the organic compounds which contain only carbon and hydrogen atoms.

Alkynes are the unsaturated hydrocarbons which contain at least one triple bond.

The general molecular formula for the alkyne is CnH2n2.

The IUPAC rules for naming the compound are:

The longest continuous chain is to be selected and then the number of carbon atoms is counted in that chain.

If a substituent is present in the longest chain, then name each substituent according to the number of carbon atoms present in the substituent.

The base chain is to be numbered in such a way that the substituent gets the lowest number.

Finally, the compound’s name is written in such a way that the number of the substituent is followed by a dash, after that the name of the substituent is written and then the base name of the compound.

Explanation of Solution

a)

The longest chain of the carbon contains three carbon atoms and the triple bond is attached to the first carbon atom.

So, the name of the compound is propyne.

b)

The longest chain of the carbon contains six carbon atoms and the triple bond is attached to the third carbon atom...
