step one, look at the parent chain, and it's cyclohexane.
so it's going to be " " " cyclohexane. now we need to start naming, and numbering
we have three methyl groups, -CH3 and one hydroxyl group. so when naming these groups we star in alphabetical order i believe
but, OH- is an alcohol so it will be cyclohexanol.
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
OH = OL when naming compound.
|dw:1439571961356:dw| i'm not too sure about this but we have to number all carbons on the ring.
the OH- is at position one, or carbon 1, while the methyl groups are on carbon 2, 4 and 5
Thank you very much! I appreciate the explanation too, and not just giving me the answer :)
yeah no problem, just remember that the longest carbon chain = the parent and the basis of the name. in this case cyclo-hexane. usually alcohol takes priority. there are a bunch of rules though, but usually when you name the substitutents you need to number the carbon atoms and see which one's there are at.
|dw:1439572281925:dw| Like in this example it would be (2,2) di methyl then the parent chain.
