Give the main/longest chain name (1pt), functional group(s) name (2pts) and IUPAC name (2pts) of the following organic compound: CH3CH2CH2CH2CH2COOH.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Hexanoic acid. This is because there are 6 carbons in the chain and COOH is the acidic part of the molecule.
Thats the functional name and the IUPAC name as well?
It is a carboxylic acid(functional name). The IUPAC is the name I gave you. It is called hexanoic because hex is the prefix meaning 6.
