    If anyone could help that would be great!

    Basically, I've been told to order the functional groups and akyl groups in alphabetical order and I was fine with that.

    A question then asked me to draw out 2-methyl-2-iodopropanoic acid?

    Surely it would 2-iodo-2-methylpropanoic acid?

    The questions says the compound is called 2-methyl-2-iodopropanoic acid. If we are naming the functional and alkyl groups in alphabetical order, the name should be 2-iodo-2-methylpropanoic acid because i comes before m in the alphabet? i think?
