Nomenclature (using IUPAC)

  1. Sep 18, 2003 #1
    Which one is the correct systematic name for compund (a), N-hydroxyaniline or N-phenylhydroxylamine ?

    Also, how should we name compound (b), 2,2-dichloro-1-ethylcycloheptane or 1,1-dichloro-2-ethylcycloheptane ?

    umm can you show the structure for a and b? haven't done nomenclature in awhile, but i should be able to figure it out pretty quick.

    nevermind, had a brain fart.

    i believe (a) is N-phenylhydroxylamine

    and (b) is 1,1-dichloro-2-ethylcycloheptane

    no problem. however i should point out that (b) has a chiral center on C2, this will change it's IUPAC name depending on where the ethyl group is located (R or S).
