Carbitol nommenclature
« on: May 12, 2004, 01:19:40 AM »
Hi,
I need help finding the name of an organic compound in the standard nomenclature.  It's called iso-butyl methyl carbitol.   I know that Carbitol is a trademark of the Union Carbide company.  I think it's a diethylene glycol ether, but I'm not sure about the proper nomenclature or the structure.
thanks

Fooman.

Carbinol is an old name of methanol. So you have methanol substitutet at carbon with
methyl and isobutyl (2-butyl) group. So, it is 3-methyl-2-pentanol.

No no no no no.  Its not Carbinol. It's Carbitol. Carbitol is a trademark of the Union Carbide company.  I found out Methyl Carbitol is Diethylene Glycol Monomethyl Ether.  I want to know what iso-butyl methyl carbitol is.
Thanks again
