1. I have been facing problem with the use of carb-prefix under same special conditions in organic chemistry nomenclature.


Homework Equations




3. One friend of mine suggested me that if there are 3 or more similar functional group, out of which none can be given priority in a single structure, then usually carb- prefix is used before the secondary suffix like tricarbamide, tricarbaldehyde, and so on. To provide further clarity to my question , the image has been given below.
First image is named 1,3,-Pentanedioic Acid

Second image is named 1,2,3-Tricarboxylic Acid

Also it will be very kind, if you can suggest me onto which are the specific conditions , no single functional group(out of similar multiple ones in a structure), be given priority so that they are left out of parent chain and treated as substituents
