Level 7-Cyclic Compounds

 

 

Cyclic compounds-Hydrocarbons in which the 2 ends of the chain are attached at the ends to form a ring

The rule for naming is they all start with "cyclo-".

 

Naming Compounds- Again, ignore all the hydrogen's. We only worry about carbon atoms.

Rule #1-Name the carbon ring.  Start it with "cyclo".

C3H6 Cyclopropane
C4H8 Cyclobutane
C5H10 Cyclopentane
C6H12 Cyclohexane
