    no, don't try and change the nomenclature in your own way. follow the IUPAC rule, that is why nomenclature has been standardized so everyone name them the same way so that no future confusion exists.

    read through the nomenclature system throughly before even coming up with new names of your own, please.

    actually you might be right; now i am not too sure; i seemed to recall having heard of buta-1,3-diene and also 1,3-butadiene.

    No, its not, but you can name 1,3,-heptadiene as hepta-1,3,-diene I think! Better sticking to what you're sure of though.

    SWEngineer - some friendly advice. You really are trying everyone's patience here. We are more than happy to help with genuine questions, but if you keep posting your "re-inventions" of chemistry, you may find the help dries up...

    This isn't meant to sound offensive in anyway, but the way we've been taught it for AS is the way he suggested.

    e.g. pent-2-ene, pent-1,2-diene

    So he's not reinventing anything on this occasion :P Please don't kill me!

    Not true. He said

    heptadi-1,3-ene


    That is not the way you have been taught at AS.

    The only ways of naming this are 1,3-heptadiene, or heta-1,3-diene
