  31. Isomers:
    Different compounds formed from the same with the same molecular formula.
  32. Rules for naming compounds
    • 1) Number the C atoms in the longest C chain or closest to the branch.
    • 2) Name the number location, and type of branches (di, tri, tetra if more than one of the same) in alphabetical order.
    • 3)Name the parent branch (longest branch) drop the "-ane" end of Alkane group and add "-yl."

  37. Naming cycloalkanes
    When a cycloalkane has 2 or more substituted groups, the ring is numbered to give the location of the substituted group the smallest #.
  38. Prefixes when cycloalkanes consist of 2 or more substituted groups.
    • -Di, tri, tetra are used along with
    • -Cis (same), and trans (opposite) are used.
    • (e.g. cis-1,3-dimethyclcyclohexane, trans-1,2-dimethylcyclohexane).
