Organic Chemistry Nomenclature

In naming organic compounds, the nomenclature must specify the location of all special features. This is commonly done using "locants" such as numbers, as in 2-bromobutane. There are some cases where the number is omitted. However, students are sometimes confused about when they can omit a number. This series addresses the cases where the number, can be omitted, and discusses a common misconception about when it can be omitted. This series presents a 6 rule guide and a priority chart that, if strictly adhered to, will enable to you name any compound that is thrown in your path.
