I am trying to name the following esters using the IUPAC method.
- Propionsaure acid and Methanol
- Acetic acid and Amyl Alcohol
- Salicylic acid and 2-Propanol
I was looking at the code words and number of carbons:
- code no of carbons
as well as the type of carbon carbon bonds:an
= only carbon-carbon single bondsen
= contains a carbon-carbon double bond
but I am still having problems creating the name of the esters. Any guidance will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
