🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Polo's class at VCU.
What is the proper IUPAC name for the compound given below?
We’re being asked to name the given structure using IUPAC nomenclature.
Recall that IUPAC nomenclature follows this pattern:
Locations – Substituents – Root (Modifier)
The steps for IUPAC naming are:
Step 1: Determine the longest carbon chain and the parent name.
Step 2: List down the substituents present and their locants.
Step 3: Combine the locants, substituents, and parent name.
