In order to give compounds a name, certain rules must be followed. This is to give consistency to the names. It also enables every compound to have a unique name, which is not possible with the common names used for example in industry.

Alchemists frequently assigned names to substances with the intent of concealing what they were working on from their fellow workers. This attitude has gradually changed throughout the years, so that chemists now strive to reveal their latest theories or discoveries to others either orally or through the printed medium. To communicate easily with one another, it has been necessary to devise a special language which we call chemical nomenclature 1,2,3,4,5. We expect this nomenclature not only to define a given compound uniquely but to reveal what atoms are present, how the atoms are arranged within the molecule, and chemical relationships with other compounds as well. Chemical nomenclature as we know it today had its beginning when Guyton de Morveau, Lavoisier, Berthollet, and Fourcroy published their "Methode de Nomenclature Chimique" in

Table of Functional Group Priorities for Nomenclature

Organic Chemistry Nomenclature Quizzes. If you have a molecule with, say, a carboxylic acid and a ketone you consult the table. The functional group with the highest priority will be the one which gives its suffix to the name of the molecule. However this really is an example of something you have to either look up , memorize, or have a computer do for you. Note that with the exception of sulfonic acids, these are all carboxylic acid derivatives. For example, pentenol. At this point the methodology for naming molecules changes slightly.

This brings us to a common source of confusion in nomenclature. Some functional groups have been deemed unworthy of ever getting their own suffixes. Source: Table 5. Here are some examples of applying the order of functional group priorities to solve nomenclature problems. I think ether should be right after amines and alkane after nitro? According to my view friend your thought is wrong because you should know that we write fg as prefix only when it has less priority and you can not use alkane as prefix.

So fg having high priority is used in the form of suffix. Ether is not used as suffix so it has less priority than alkane. It will be after alkane and not after amine. Methyl, ethyl, propyl and so on. If ether is supposed to be before amine, then kindly show proof of how a carbon with ether as suffix should be named.

I found this from a book I am using to study for my DAT exam. In the case where each would have the same position number, the double bond takes the lower number. Alkene gets preference due to its alphabetical order. And if alkyne present at lower locant than alkene so alkyne will written with lower no of carbon atom.

Or in other way just sum the locant of alkene and alkyne and in whichever the sum is less that will be followed. For example we would number 2-bromo 3-nitro butane based on the fact that bromine is higher up in our alphabet than nitro. Dude…that is so not how you should apply nomenclature. Everything is not alphabetical order. You should go take classes before you post shit on the internet….

Because according to IUPAC rule functional group having first letter and which came earlier in alphabetical system will be written first. I believe it is at least partially based on oxidation state, with higher oxidation state having higher priority. Nomenclature is a human convention. Will sulphonic acid be given more priority than carboxylic acid?

Carboxy may be used when one of the chains attached to the root carboxylic acid also has the carboxylic acid functional group. Why does alkyne have more priority ovr alkene? Because i have seen compounds where the least no: is given to alkynes ie. The yne might have been given priority in this case because the parent chain could be numbered in such a way to make one of the unsaturations C1, and it happened to be the yne and not the ene.

If double and triple bonds are present in a structure, they are considered together when assigning lowest locants. Only when this does not allow a resolution do double bonds receive the lowest locants. What about epoxides? I agree, I think that ethers should be higher priority than alkanes. If the carbon chain contains both the double and triple bond and they are both on the terminal carbons, then prioritization is given to the double bond.

But if both double and triple bond are not on the terminal carbons, prioritization is given to the triple bond. These are called enynes. Respected sir, I have a doubt which may be small for you , but it brings more confusion if sulphonic acid and carboxylic acid are given which should be given priority first sir.

Thanking you sir! Why NO2 is not taken as principal functional group , since the compound which is more withdrawing is considered to be as more powerful functional group!!

So why is it so???? Very informative and well organised…. In what way? Can you be more specific? Out of Sulphonic acid and carboxylic acid which would be given more priority?? Please tell the answer…i m little confused. Carboxylic acids. Just below carboxylic acids. I think that the priority order of functional group is this : 1. I think it is good to provide this type of chart to the student because this help them in their study So Thanks!!!

In the ease of open chain compounds the secondary prefix is added just before the root word in the alphabetical order. Phenol is not considered a separate group. They are named as alcohols. OH is the functional group, and C6H5 is the parent hydride. Which one we prioritise if we have three chlorine or bromine at one end of the chain and the carboxylic on the other end? During nomenclature of long chain carbon compounds, numbering done in such a way as to locate double or triple bond by shortest route.

In any way alkynes are preferred over alkenes. All alkenes and alkynes are considered as a set for determining the lowest locant. When both alkene and alkyne are present, the -yne suffix will be used. Your priority table is very very wrong. I think you should go study some more before misleading others.

Please correct them our just remove the page. Well everything is fine, but i think sulphonic acid is missing which should be placed just below carboxylic acid. Section P of the Blue Book. When alcohol is on high priority than numbering should begin from alcohol.

Thanks so much! The functional group present on phenol is an alcohol OH. Phenol is not a distinct functional group. Sir, you claimed Alkene comes before alkyne in the priority table. But at the same time, you said if we have both alkene and alkyne in a molecule, yne will be the suffix. Is that not a contradiction? Okay sir. If I get it right. On the table, alkene comes before alkyne but while naming molecule with both alkene and alkyne, alkyne will be the suffix. The one that is closer to the terminal carbon will take the least number and in case of a tie, alkene will have the least number.

Is that so? Thanks in anticipation. For instance if the amide is connected to cyclohexane. How do you find the parent chain for a molecule that has multiple double and triple bonds along with a functional group? I assume you find the longest chain that contains the functional group but also contains as many of those multiple bonds as possible?

Is this correct? Regarding carboxamide- As always, we look for the longest chain that contains the functional group, but in this case the longest chain that contains the functional group of amide is the single carbonyl carbon of the amide? That is why we call it carboxamide? This question refers to compounds with multiple functional groups-When a functional group is lower priority and is named as a substituent, do we consider the carbon if the functional group has a carbon a part of the longest chain of the branched substituent?

The way I have leaned to treat branched non main chain substituents is to treat the first carbon coming off the main branch as the number one carbon and then count the longest continuous carbon chain to make the alkyl, alkenyl, or alkynl substituent the main name.

Then what ever other branches exist off that main chain you give a locant,a name, and then arrange them alphabetically. So what gives? When do you use oxo or formyl when naming aldehydes. It seems different sources say different things. What I have seen that makes the most sense is to use formyl when the aldehyde is not part of main parent chain and use oxo when it is.

Table of Functional Group Priorities for Nomenclature

Chemical nomenclature is used to identify a chemical species by means of written or spoken words and enables a common language for communication amongst chemists. Nomenclature for chemical compounds additionally contains an explicit or implied relationship to the structure of the compound, in order that the reader or listener can deduce the structure from the name. This purpose requires a system of principles and rules, the application of which gives rise to a systematic nomenclature. Of course, a wide range of traditional names, semisystematic or trivial, are also in use for a core group of common compounds. Detailing the latest rules and international practice, this new volume can be considered a guide to the essential organic chemical nomenclature, commonly described as the "Blue Book". An invaluable source of information for organic chemists everywhere and the definitive guide for scientists working in academia or industry, for scientific publishers of books, journals and databases, and for organisations requiring internationally approved nomenclature in a legal or regulatory environment.

It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. Hellwinkel gives a short and general introduction to the systematic nomenclature of organic compounds. On the basis of carefully selected examples it offers simple and concise guidelines for the generation of systematic compound names as codified by the IUPAC rules. Besides the most common compound classes important special areas such as cyclophanes, carbohydrates, organometallic and isotopically modified compounds and stereochemical specifications are dealt with.

You were previously introduced to several structural units that chemists use to classify organic compounds and predict their reactivities. These functional groups, which determine the chemical reactivity of a molecule under a given set of conditions, can consist of a single atom such as Cl or a group of atoms such as CO 2 H. The major families of organic compounds are characterized by their functional groups. Halogen-substituted alkanes, alkenes, and arenes form a second major family of organic compounds, which include the alkyl halides and the aryl halides. The systematic nomenclature of organic compounds indicates the positions of substituents using the lowest numbers possible to identify their locations in the carbon chain of the parent compound. If two compounds have the same systematic name, then they are the same compound. Although systematic names are preferred because they are unambiguous, many organic compounds are known by their common names rather than their systematic names.

Вообще-то ему это ни к чему, но Сьюзан знала, что его не удовлетворит скороспелая ложь о диагностической программе, над которой машина бьется уже шестнадцать часов. Хейл потребует, чтобы ему сказали правду. Но именно правду она не имела ни малейшего намерения ему открывать. Она не доверяла Грегу Хейлу.

Вокруг него бушевала настоящая буря, но в его глазах она увидела смирение. Губы Стратмора приоткрылись, произнеся последнее в его жизни слово: Сьюзан. Воздух, ворвавшийся в ТРАНСТЕКСТ, воспламенился. В ослепительной вспышке света коммандер Тревор Стратмор из человека превратился сначала в едва различимый силуэт, а затем в легенду. Взрывной волной Сьюзан внесло в кабинет Стратмора, и последним, что ей запомнилось, был обжигающий жар.

 - Мы упускаем последнюю возможность вырубить питание. Фонтейн промолчал. И словно по волшебству в этот момент открылась дверь, и в комнату оперативного управления, запыхавшись, вбежала Мидж. Поднявшись на подиум, она крикнула: - Директор.

 Я знаю. Я считываю их с вашего компьютера. Стратмор недоверчиво покачал головой. - Ты пробрался в мой кабинет. - Нет.

The names of alkanes and cycloalkanes are the root names of organic compounds. Beginning with the five-carbon alkane, the number of carbons in the chain is.
