    Iso- can be used for substituents that branch at the second-to-last carbon and end with two methyl group not one

    |dw:1328015856402:dw|Neo- refers to a substituent whose second-to-last carbon of the chain is trisubstituted (has three methyl groups attached to it).

    this are all applicable for functional groups like alcohol,ketone etc that i swhy it is the 2nd carbon as functional group is given importannce while naming

    the functional group is given importance not the 2nd carbon while naming

    hey i figured it out at last..... first we draw the 2nd carbon at the end then a 1st carbon always start from right to left |dw:1328017579611:dw| when they say neo add 3 more carbons to that (supposed to be) 2nd carbon when it is iso add 2 carbons then dont dont 1st named carbon then count how many carbons has been used up by those 1st and second with regard to that add remaninig carbons with hydrogen in the place of R that i have written for example when u say neo-pentane first write down the 2nd and 1st carbon |dw:1328017794651:dw| DONT TOUCH 1ST CARBON later out of the 5 carbons available i used up 5 carbons so i dont have any more to fill instead of R if there are extra carbons after satisfying 1 and 2 JUST PUT THEM INSTEAD OF R it works for almost everything i tried
