Isomers and Alkane Reactions

Sometimes, questions in IG involve the naming of organic isomers. The first section of this file looks at this for branched alkanes.

The numbers used to indicate where the pendent (or hanging) groups are must be as low as possible, so remember to check from both ends of the molecule.

This is a useful resource for working out how to name isomers. Look at it carefully and follow this link to the IUPAC Names tab which is at the top of the page.

The second section looks briefly at some reactions of alkanes. This link is a particularly interesting one about the effects of methane
