Hi everyone.

I'm trying to complete some work, and I have been asked to draw 2-Fluoropropanal. Now, as I understand it there should be a Carbon emerging branching from the 2nd Carbon in the chain. But other than that, I'm stumped. I'm not even entirely sure of the molecular formula, although I think it's C3H8FO.

Propanal. It's an aldehyde. Do you know the functional group of an aldehyde?

The fluorine is also on the second carbon.

propanal is a three carbon chain

The -al ending tells you it's an aldehyde, so the end carbon must be -CHO

the 2-fluoro tells you that there's an F on the second carbon.

So just draw a three carbon chain with a CHO at the end and an F adjacent to that.

(or you could, of course, just google it!)
