Assign IUPAC names for each of the following compounds:

Video Transcript

Alright guys. So, for this question we need to determine the IUPAC name for this compound. Now, I'm gonna give it to us in a Newman projection, right? But it's a little bit harder to determine what the structure looks like and give it a name, when it's in this comp in this structure, so what we can do is convert it to a structure that we're better at naming which is our bond line, so what I want you guys to realize is that we can actually count the number of carbons here, because we know that this is going to be a carbon and we actually know that this in the back of going to be a carbon, that big circle, this dot in there is going to be a carbon, that's 4, or excuse me, 3, this is 4, this is 5 and this is 6, okay? And everything else is just hydrogens, what that new one is indicating is that we're looking between that C2 and C3 bond, so we can actually draw a bond line structure that relates to this Newman projection and what it's going to look like is we can just go ahead and draw in all of our carbons. Notice that what we have here is, we have a carbon 1 a carbon 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6, so what this is indicating is that we're looking down the C2 C3 bond. So, all that this compound is, is just a straight chain, right? Of 6 carbons and we know that we can call that just a hexane, okay? So hopefully this makes sense and now you guys are a little bit better at converting Newman to bond line and then actually naming it. Alright, so just let me know if you have any questions.
