what is the IUPAC name of CH3CH2OCH2CH3?
B.Di ethyl ether
This question is given in a book.the first three options are all correct.So,which one is wanted?
If the question is EXACTLY as you typed it, then only C is the right answer. "Ethoxy ethane" should NOT have a space in it and "Di ethyl ether" should only have ONE space in it.
If the options are exactly as I typed them above, then A, B and C are all acceptable.
D is just plain wrong.
