Might be an isobutene?
Any help is well appreciated, thank you!
The nomenclature of alkenes refers to the systematic method of naming and identifying these types of organic compounds based on their molecular structure and functional groups.
Alkenes are named by identifying the parent chain, numbering the carbons to locate the double bond, and using prefixes and suffixes to indicate the type and position of any functional groups.
The basic rules for naming alkenes include identifying the longest carbon chain, numbering the carbons to give the double bond the lowest possible number, and using prefixes and suffixes to indicate any functional groups.
Cis and trans isomers refer to the arrangement of atoms around a carbon-carbon double bond. In naming alkenes, if the same groups are on the same side of the double bond, it is cis, and if they are on opposite sides, it is trans. This is indicated in the name with the prefix "cis-" or "trans-".
There are some exceptions to the nomenclature of alkenes, such as when the compound has multiple double bonds or when the double bond is not the highest priority functional group. In these cases, the naming may be modified according to specific rules.
