ORGANIC CHEMISTRY HELP! What is the IUPAC name for this structure? Here is a link to the structure. I thought the name was "2-3-cyclomethylpentane" But its not right! Please help! http://d2vlcm61l7u1fs.cloudfront.net/media%2F7ee%2F7eee1b6f-db1e-4aa6-945c-35ba50781027%2Fphp84rDcB.png

    Hey. You can start by the side that has the alkyl group. There are 2 methyl groups, particularlry in positions 1 and 2. Hence, name it as 1,2 dimethyl cyclopentane.

    Start by numbering the side with an alkyl group attached to the main substance.
