Question

Each of the following is a functional class name developed according to the 1993 and 2004 IUPAC recommendations. Alkyl group names of this type are derived by naming the longest continuous chain that includes the point of attachment, numbering in the direction so as to give the substituted carbon the lower number. The -e ending of the corresponding alkane is replaced by - yl, which is preceded by the number corresponding to the substitued carbon bracketed by hyphens. Write a structural formula for each alkyl halide.

(a) 6-Methylheptan-3-yl chloride
