Alcohol Isomer

  1. Aug 18, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    There is a fourth isomeric alcohol with formula C4H9OH. Draw a structural formula for this isomer and write its systematic name.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I am stuck...
    This is part of a chemistry lab about the reactivities of isomeric alcohols but I have no idea what this 'fourth isomer' could be.
    If anyone could even set me on the right track it would be appreciated :smile:

    never mind
    It was right under my nose the whole time.
    I already had; 1-butanol, 2-butanol and 2-methyl-2-proponal.
    The one I was looking for was 2-methyl-1-proponal

    Thanks anyways
