This page may be too complex. Please help us improve the Future Wikia by simplifying this article.
This page is specialised. It may interest certain professionals in a narrow field and is written with that target group in mind.

NOTE: Please take a look at Theory:Nomenclature:Branched Hydrocarbons first, to gain an understanding of how to use this page. Nomenclature has various parts to it, and should be studied in order.


Rule #1: Functional group modifiers come at the end of the name, with highest-priority groups at the end. This is except for functional groups in the middle of the molecule (esters and ethers). The priority is assigned as per the original IUPAC conventions.
