Generic radical nomeclature
« on: September 16, 2013, 08:29:06 PM »
I can identify and name (with the correct priority) the fundamental organic functional groups. However, when it comes to specifying families of structures where the number of intervening carbons is not necessarily explicit, I get somewhat lost. I can recognize the constituent parts of the radical name, but am not at all clear how they are ordered with respect to the "nucleus".

For instance, when I want to reference a substituted naphthalene, I don't know whether
is a carbonylalkylaminoalkylnapthalene carboxylic acid* or a alkylaminoalkylcarbonylnaphthalene carboxylix acid.

Is there a standard way of specifying genric structure (e.g., towards the "nucleus")?

*I know the IUPAC designated infix of a carbonyl is "oxo" but it is easily confused with the infix for ether "oxy", so I prefer "carbonyl" in this context.
