Organic Chemistry Fundamentals

  • Daniel J. Shanefield


Before attempting to deal with other aspects of organic chemistry, it is necessary that the nomenclature (naming system) of chemistry be understood. Many organic chemicals have more than one name, an example being a particular type of alcohol containing three carbon atoms, which can be called any of the following five names:
  • “isopropyl alcohol,” or “isopropanol,” or

  • “secondary propyl alcohol,” or “sec-propanol,” or

  • “2-propanol.”
