Organic Nomenclature
« on: October 08, 2012, 09:09:40 PM »
This may be in the wrong forum category, but I am in need of someone to talk about Organic Chemistry with in order to memorize the material.  I'd talk to the people in my class but, they are all too condescending for me to handle.  >:(

However, thanks anyways!
I'm always willing to help out with problems as well.

Feel free to place your organic chemistry questions here. But note the forum rules. You have to show your own attempt to solve the problem, then, if we can, we will try and push you in the direction of an answer.

No problem, if I were you I would watch a few videos on Nomenclature, try the problem(s) again and ask us to confirm the answer.

I agree with epic winston.
Is it a general rule to start at the substiuents in cyclo stuff?
