IUPAC system of the nomenclature established the international standard of naming for the flexibility of the compounds. 

 Fundamental principles 

The nomenclature is completely based on the longest chain of carbons connected with the single bonds; it can be a continuous chain or maybe a ring. Other groups except for the carbon and hydrogen groups are identified by the prefixes and suffixes. 


  1. a) C3H8

IUPAC name of this molecule is n-propane, Dimethyl methane, or Propyl hydride. This molecule belongs to the Alkane group, which is following the formula of CnH2n+2.

  1. b) CH3CH2CH2CH2CH3

In this molecule, there are 5 Carbon atoms connected with the single bonds. The suffix is here is “ane.” That is the reason the name of the compound is pentane. It is known as the “n-pentane.”

  1. c) CH3CH (CH3) CH2CH2CH2CH3

In this compound there are 6 carbons are present in the linear structure and the second carbon methyl group is associated. That is the reason the name of the compound is started with the position of the methyl group and the IUPAC name of this compound is “2-methylhexane.”

  1. d) CH3CH2CH2Br

The compound is the “bromoderivative of alkanes.” The name of the compound is “Alkyl bromide or bromoalkane.” According to the IUPAC rules by the analysis of the position of the bromine group the name of the compound is 1-bromopropane.

  1. e) CH2CH2

The compound is representing the hydrocarbon group. The IUPAC name of the compound is “Ethene.” It is the simplest form “alkene.”

  1. f) CH3CH=CHCH3

This compound is showing the fact of the symmetrical structure in both says of the double bond. In a compound there are 4 carbon atoms are present. Here the prefix is “But.” There is a double bond between the 2 and 3 carbon groups. That is the reason the suffix is “ene.” The name of the compound is “2-butene.”

  1. g) CH=CH CH2CH2CH2 CH2

Cyclohexene represents the group of hydrocarbons. This is mainly produced from the “hydrogenation of the benzene.” Here the carbon number is 6, which is the reason the prefix is “hex.”

  1. h) C2H5OH

As per the IUPAC nomenclature the root word is here eth (here 2 carbon groups are present) and the primary suffix is ane and the secondary suffix is ol. Overall, the name of the molecule as per the IUPAC rule is “ethanol.”


In this compound as a functional group, the “enol” group is associated with the carbon number 2 and here seven carbon atoms are present that is the reason the prefix is here is “hepta.” Overall, the name of the compound is “2-heptanol.”

  1. J) CH3CH2COOH

The compound group containing the functional group is “Carboxylic acid.” The longest chain is here three carbon chains. The suffix is here “oic acid.” Here the number of the carbon is three that is the reason the prefix is “propane." Overall, the name of the compound is “Propanoic Acid.”

  1. K) CH3CH2CH2CHO

  1. a) Structural isomers

The concept of Structural isomers is completely based on the arrangement of the atoms. In this particular type of compound, the arrangement of the atoms is different from one another that have similar molecular formulas (Meng et al. 2018). Different types of connectives are observed in this type of compound. Different bonding can also be present in different arrangements.


  1. i) Chain Isomerism

In this particular type of isomerism, differentiation is observed between two or more compounds that have a similar molecular formula but the arrangement of the carbon atoms  are different in the straight or branched chains.

Example: The formula of a compound is C5H12, which can show the chain isomerism because there are three compounds present "n-pentane, 2-methyl butane and 2, 2 dimethyl-propane.”

Figure 4: Chain Isomerism

(Source: Meng et al. 2018)

  1. ii) Position Isomerism

Positional isomerism or the position isomerism shows the same functional groups but the positions of those functional groups are different from each other.

Example: Suppose the chemical formula is C6H4Br2 and there are three isomers are present in this same formula and they are1,2-dibromobenzene, 1,3-dibromobenzene and 1,4 dibromobenzene.” Here the functional group is the “dibromo group”  but their positions are different.

Figure 5: Positional isomerism

(Source: Li et al. 2020)

iii) Functional isomerism

Functional group isomerism, also called functional isomerism, which is completely based on the atoms, creates different functional groups. Different functional groups are present in these isomers.

Example: The molecular formula is dimethyl ether, and ethanol or ethyl alcohol, which contains different functional groups.

  1. a) “Stereoisomers”

Stereoisomer is part of isomers, which have the same type of composition but they are completely different from each other by their orientation. They show the same molecular formulaand differ in their atomic structure in the 3d space.

  1. b) “But-2-ene” represents the two different groups of the alkene carbon. E and Z isomers of this compound show the differences between the positions of the substituents, which are located on the double-bonded atoms. These two isomers are named are as follows:

1) “Cis-but-2-ene” (Z-isomer)

AC 2.1

  • a) Complete combustion

In the presence of excess Oxygen, alkanes are burnt through complete combustion. In this particular situation, the alkane is heated with the help of this oxygen. Heat energy is released.


 C3H8 + 5O2 – 3CO2 + 4H2O

  1. b) Incomplete combustion

Incomplete combustion occurs oxygen supply is very low or poor. Carbon monoxide and carbon are produced instead of the carbon dioxide. Water is still produced in this type of combustion.

Example: C3H8 +2O2-3C + 4H2O

  1. b)
  2. Complete combustion of pentane

C5H12 + 8O2- 6H2O + 5CO2

  1. Incomplete Combustion of Pentane

C5H12 + 6O2- 4CO +CO2+6H2O

  • Complete Combustion of Heptane

 C7H16 + O2- CO2+H2O

  1. Incomplete combustion of Heptane

C7H14 + 9O2-5CO2+ CO+ C+ 7H2O

  1. C)

Incomplete combustion of the alkenes air and the oxygen is poor. Water is still produced after this reaction but in this type of the chemical reaction Carbon monoxide and carbon are produced. The gas “Carbon monoxide” is one type of the poisonous gas, which is harmful for the humans, that is the reason complete combustion is preferred over incomplete combustion.

  1. d) Impact of burning Fossils

The combustion of fossil fuels gives harmful compounds like sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides. This type of pollution mix with the water, oxygen, and other chemicals in the atmosphere, which is generally creates acidic pollutants (Li et al. 2020). This is known as air pollution. The increase in the burning of fossil fuels helps in the growth of the temperature, which put a negative effect on society. A huge amount of fossil fuel use is also responsible for the improvement of Global warming. The rise in the sea level, air pollution, and release of toxic gases are some of the n negative impacts on the environment. 

These problems can be mitigated by reducing the use of fossil fuels. The industry should focus on the complete combustion of fossil fuels because incomplete combustion creates toxic gases like carbon monoxide. That is the reason the reduction of the use of fossil fuels in vehicles and other equipment will ultimately help in the reduction of pollution.


  1. a) Photochemical reaction represents a special type of chemical reactions, which is started after the absorption of the energy, and this energy is absorbed from the light. This type of chemical reaction includes “Photo-induced rearrangements and isomerization.”
  2. b) In the presence of the UV light especially in the presence of the sunlight, the mixture of the methane and the chlorine creates the substitution reaction as result chloromethane is produced.


CH4 + Cl2- CH3CL +HCL

The three steps of this photochemical reaction are as follows:

  1. Initiation

In this, step-free radicals are created with the help of ultraviolet light.

  1. Propagation

In this step, the chlorine molecule abstracts the hydrogen from the methane.

  1. Termination

In this step, radicals are produced in the mechanism, which ultimately produces the sigma bond.

  1. c) Chemical reactions:

AC 3.1

  1. a) The alkenes are generally identified as the unsaturated hydrocarbons because two atoms can join onto half of the carbon = carbon double bond when it opens up.” Carbon to carbon double bond is observed in this type of the molecule (Motsch et al.2018).


Figure 19: Carbon-Carbon double bond formation

 (Source: Guérinot and Cossy, 2020)

  1. C) Ethene generally reacts with the hydrogenbromide and this reaction occurs in the presence of the nickel catalysts. The double bond breaks and a hydrogen atom end by the attachment with a carbon molecule and the bromine atom attaches with the other carbon atom. This type of reaction is representing the “Electrophile addition reaction” (Guérinot and Cossy, 2020).




Figure 20: Electrophilic addition reaction

(Source: Bartoszewicz et al. 2019)

  1. Hydrogen bromide reacts with the propane and produces “1-bromopropane and 2-bromopropane” but in this reaction electrophile attacks the double bond for the formation of 10 and 20“Secondarycarbocation” are more stable than the primary one which makes the “2- bromopropane” major product in this reaction (Bartoszewicz et al. 2019).
  2. The reaction is between the “hex-1 one” and As a result the alkene will be converted into the brown bromine water is colorless water because the bromine reacts with the carbon-carbon double bonds. As a result, the hexane reacts with the bromine more than hexane. That is the reason the bromine test is done for the identification of the alkene group (Hao et al. 2020).
  1. A) Addition polymerization

This is one type of chain reaction, the monomer attaches to the polymer with the growing polymer. Loss of other atoms does not occur in this reaction.

  1. ii) Botanic acid can be obtained by the oxidation of butane-1-ol and the reagents which are used for this reaction is Chromium (VI) for the oxidation purpose and the other reagents are chromic acid (H2CrO4), Potassium dichromate (K2Cr2O7) and Chromic anhydride (CrO3).

iii) Butane has the polar O-H bond which shows the intermolecular h-bonding as a is next to impossible due to the absence of a polar bond.

  1. A dehydration reaction involves the loss of the water from the reacting molecule or the ions. Propane -1- ol to the formation of the propane can niot be done generally from the propane-2 – ol will produce propane (Estopiñá-Duránet al. 2021).
  1. The possible two components that are which re produced after the heating of 2-methylbutan-2-ol with concentrated sulphuric acid are 1) 2 methyl-2 butene and 2) 2 methylbut-1-ene.
  1. Dehydration of the alcohol Provides different kinds of monomers like alkenes, which is the starting product of the most of the common polymers. In the polythene, the starting monomer is ethane, which is generally produced by the dehydration of ethanol (Rana et al. 2021).


  1. a) “Nucleophile substitution reaction” represents the class of reactions, which creates an elctron rich nucleophile attacks different positively charged electrophile for the replacement of the leaving group.

“Substitution reaction” represents a particular chemical reactions in which an atom, ion or a group of atoms are replaced by the another atom, ion or group.

  1. C) The reaction between the primary alcohol and the secondary alcohol in the presence of the HCL gas, which is acidic, the formation of haloalkanes is done. The application of the anhydrous agent is also needed for the completion of the reaction (Anet al. 2020). ZnCl2 is acts as catalyst in this reaction. In other words, the interaction of the phosphoric acid with sodium iodide with the interaction of iodoalkane helps in the formation of haloalkanes (hydrogen iodide) with the interaction of alcohol.
