Problem 24.12 True or false: The weaker a single bond in a molecule, the greater the chance it will be the site of a reaction (compared to stronger single bonds in the molecule).
Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 5) Name each substituent. A substituent formed by removing an H atom from an alkane is called an alkyl group. Alkyl groups are named by replacing the -ane ending of the alkane name with -yl. The methyl group 1CH32, for example, is derived from methane 1CH42 and the ethyl group 1C2H52 is derived from ethane 1C2H62. Table 24.4 lists six common alkyl groups. 4. Begin the name with the number or numbers of the carbon or carbons to which each substituent is bonded. For our compound, the name 2-methylhexane indicates the presence of a methyl group on C2 of a hexane (six-carbon) chain.5. When two or more substituents are present, list them in alphabetical order. The presence of two or more of the same substituent is indicated by the prefixes di- (two), tri- (three), tetra- (four), penta- (five), and so forth. The prefixes are ignored in determining the alphabetical order of the substituents:We are given the condensed structural formula of an alkane and asked to give its name. Because the hydrocarbon is an alkane, its name ends in -ane.
