So I know the main part, the alcohol is the alkyl- part and the carboxylic acid is the -oate part. However what if you have the alcohol being butan-2-ol, would it's name be the same as that of butan-1-ol?
The reason is that in a practical I used a variety of both constituents (or rather should have, ended up only using benzoic acid) and those were two of the three alcohols used (other being methanol, but naming that's easy)
I suspect it is going to be but-1-yl benzoate (and then benz-2-yl for the positional isomer) but I may be wrong as I haven't seen that
Is it really that intense? Would I cope?
