Name the following compounds. Remember that two up bonds are cis; two down bonds are cis;
one up bond and one down bond are trans.
Solution 28P :
While naming the compounds given, we have to note that the compounds having two up bonds and two down bonds are ‘cis’ isomer and compounds having one up bond and one down bond are ‘trans’ isomer.
We should see in a compound that, if a substituent group is or the functional group is placed on ‘up’ bond or ‘down’ bond relative to the hydrogen(H) atom at the same carbon atom.
