FREE Expert Solution

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.
