It is a molecule which consists of a propyl group (C3H7) and an amino group (NH2). That is why the name (better: nomenclature) is propyl-amine.

You are welcome. To get the name out of a molecule, here are some clues:

1.) determine the substance (Alkane, Alkene, alcohol...).
2.) determine the functional groups (like NH2 group) and the atoms which are bound to the molecule as compound.
3.) determine the number of the functional groups and atoms in the molecule.
4.) determine their positions on C-atoms (are they bound to the first, second or third C-Atom?)

After following the step, it is not so difficult to get the nomenclature out anylonger.

Example: CH2Cl2

Substance: methane
Atoms: chlorine atoms
Number: two
Position: first C-Atom (the molecule contains just one C-Atom only).

Name: Dichlormethane

Thanks it's just that I was getting confused with how to remember so many names as I am currently studying the a level topics on carbonyls and there are many reactions with substances that contain nitrogen atoms, and initially I was struggling to name them because there's nitriles, amines, amides, etc and then there's names of esters and carboxylate salts and argh there's so much haha

It is confused at the beginning, I will give you that. had the same problems. If you keep trying, it is getting better from time to time. As a former student who had chemisty taken as A levels, I reassure you: it is not the most important one to recognise the names, but to understand and to reason the reactions in turn.

It is just whenever I saw a molecule which is not so familar to me, I was using the rules for nomenclature to name the molecule. Imagine: you have to explain reaction steps without being able to name the molecule...

The preferred IUPAC name is actually propan-1-amine.

you're right - when reading the first replies I became quite confused, but you at least reassured me that it isn't simply "propyl-amine" seeing as there needs to be some account of the location of the amine
