Chemistry: Common and IUPAC Names of Organic Compounds (Notes)


Here are some notes that I have made, after collecting the common and IUPAC names of well known organic compounds from Wikipedia. I’m sure you will find these notes very useful while studying organic chemistry. Often, examiners ask questions in the exam, wherein they use the common name of an organic compound, which many of us may not know. Hence, to be on the safe side, make sure you memorize the common and IUPAC names of these frequently used organic compounds. πŸ™‚

 

The common and IUPAC names of the organic compounds in order of their functional groups are given in a tabular form in the PDF below.

 

Here’s a link to the PDF file for the above notes:

    To inform that there is mistake with the IUPAC name of iso propyl alcohol — It is 2 propanol / propan-2-ol. and not 1-propanol.
