1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations - 3. The attempt at a solution i understand that benzoate is derived from carboxylic acid (COOH) to which isopropyl has replaced the H, forming a benzoate substituent to which we derive the parent name of the structure. I understand that Chloro is the name for the Cl substituent and that it is joined to C2. What i dont understand is why the structure is called: isopropyl-2-chlorobenzoate as opposed to 2-chloroisopropylbenzoate does it possibly have something to do with the fact that 2-chloroisopropylbenzoate does not specify whether the Cl substituent is joined to C2 on isopropyl or benzene? Or does the isopropyl group take priority over the Cl group? isopropyl-2-chlorobenzoate isnt alphabetised and thats what confuses me the most here. Not quite sure and in need of a little help. Thankyou.
