the 2 after CH3 is subscript and the 2 after CH
is the answer 1,1methyl 2 hexyl butanoic acid
i just started nomenclature so didnt know how to arrange the hydroxyl group
You always start with the functional group in this case it is the COOH as it is a carboxylic acid. Therefore when counting the carbons you start from the functional group. Also because there is 1 methyl group I would say 3,methyl (3 because it is on the third carbon and counting from the functional group) Same with the hydroxyl group. I would name it 3-hydroxyl, 3-methyl butanoic acid. Butanoic as the longest carbon chain is 4 so the prefix would but and then oic acid cuz it is a carboxylic acid. Hope this helps!
lol my phone is dead god TSR loves to kill my battery real quick lol so cant send a pic rn but u k the OH is not bonded to the second instead it is bonded to the third as in the formula thing the OH is written after the C with backets meaning it is branched off that carbon. Also the carbon you have currently attached the hydrocyl group to is supposed to have bonded to two hydrogens and so could not possibly have the OH grop bonded there. The OH goes onto the third carbon also as all carbon make 4 bonds and your third carbon there is missing a bond lol dw. it is confusing at first but you will get the hang of it.
w be able to send me a picture of it any time your free (doesnt need to be today ) . you doon't need too though .
okay hi lol here is a pic. i have done it on my whiteboard. there are two ways u can draw it structure wise (u will see when u see the pic) but u will get the same answer and same nam
