Problem 4P

Give a systematic (IUPAC) name for each diol.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 4P

(a)

The structure of the diol is as follows:

The longest carbon chain contains nine carbons, so the compound is named as nonane.

Number the chain so that the substituents get the lowest priority.

There are two methyl groups on C8 and two hydroxyl groups on C2 and C7. Use the suffix –ol for the hydroxyl groups.

Name the substituents on the longest chain in an alphabetical order.

Therefore, the name of the compound is 8,8-dimethylnonane-2,7-diol.

(b)

The structure of the diol is as follows:

The longest carbon chain contains eight carbons, so the compound is named as octane.

There are two hydroxyl groups on C1 and C8.

Name the substituents on the longest chain in an alphabetical order. Use the suffix –ol for the hydroxyl groups.

Therefore, the name of the compound is octane-1,8-diol.

(c)

The structure of the diol is as follows:

The carbon chain contains six-membered cyclic ring with an unsaturation, so the compound is named as cyclohexene.

Number the chain so that the substituents get the lowest priority.

There are two hydroxyl groups on C1 and C4 and an unsaturation at C2.

Name the substituents in an alphabetical order. Use the suffix –ol for the hydroxyl groups.

The two  groups...
