Nomenclature trivial naming system trivial naming system is widely used in naming alkanes this naming system is useful for small alkanes and loses its utility for higher alkanes with many isomers some terminologies are explained below: normal: straight-chain compounds are considered normal and abbreviated to n. Systematic nomenclature (iupac system) prefix-parent-suffix parent- number of carbons prefix- substituents suffix- functional groups naming alkanes general formula: c nh (2n+2) suffix: -ane parent names: 1 ch 4 meth ane ch 4 2 ch 3 ch 3 eth ane c 2h 6 3 ch 3 ch 2 ch 3 prop ane c 3h 8 4 ch 3 (ch 2 )2 ch 3 but ane c 4h 10 5. Iupac nomenclature for alkyl halides follows the general pattern presented for the name alkene is very close to alkane, and for good reason consider, for. Naming an organic compound requires several steps what follows is a minimal outline consult your textbook for more details and examples find the longest continuous chain of carbon atoms this longest chain may not be written in a straight line name that longest chain with the appropriate alkane name.

Alkanes: nomenclature although many different types of nomenclature, or naming systems, were employed in the past, today only the international union of pure and applied chemistry (iupac) nomenclature is acceptable for all scientific publications. Short summary of iupac nomenclature of organic compounds alkanes and cycloalkanes b naming substituted alkanes and cycloalkanes—group c substituents only. Nomenclature of alkanes naming acyclic alkanes and identifying 1° (primary), 2° (secondary), 3° (tertiary) and 4. Iupac nomenclature of alkanes, alkenes and alkynes earlier, most of the compounds with same structural formula were known by different names depending on the regions where they were synthesised this naming system was very trivial since it raised a. The nomenclature of substituted benzene ring compounds is less systematic than that of the alkanes, alkenes and alkynes a few mono-substituted compounds are named by using a group name as a prefix to benzene, as.
Applying the rules now try applying these rules to name the following molecule (it's the proper nomenclature of this alkane is 4-ethyloctane note that a dash. For example, the simplest alkane is ch 4 methane, and the nine-carbon alkane ch 3 (ch 2) 7 ch 3 is named nonane the names of the first four alkanes were derived from methanol, ether, propionic acid and butyric acid, respectively.
How can the answer be improved. Alkanes with unbranched carbon chains are simply named by the number of carbons in the chain the first four members of the series (in terms of number of carbon atoms) are named as follows: ch4 = methane = one hydrogen-saturated carbon c2h6 = ethane = two hydrogen-saturated carbons.

The naming of polycyclic alkanes such as bicyclic alkanes and spiro alkanes is more complex, with the base name indicating the number of carbons in the ring system, a prefix indicating the number of rings (eg, bicyclo-), and a numeric prefix before that indicating the number of carbons in each part of each ring, exclusive of junctions.

Nomenclature of alkanes - oneonta. Branched alkanes differ from continuous-chain alkanes in that carbon chains substitute for a few hydrogen atoms along the chain atoms or other groups (like carbon chains) that substitute for hydrogen in an alkane are called substituents.
