Naming Of Organic Compounds

Nomenclature rules for different groups of organic compounds and functional groups, together with examples of use of the rules There are millions of different organic compounds and it is obvious that a systematic way of naming them is necessary. This article gives definitions of the different classes of organic compounds and rules for their naming together with many examples of use of the naming rules. See also naming of inorganic binary compounds. Content (links directly to the compound classes) Acyl halides Ethers Alcohols Functional groups priority Aldehydes General naming principles Alkanes Greek numbers used as prefixes Alkenes Haloalkanes (alkylhalides) Alkynes Ketones Amides Nitriles Amines Nitros Aromatics Sulfides (thioethers) Carboxylic acids Thiols (mercaptans) Esters Thiones (thioketones) General naming principles Organic compounds follow a certain naming pattern Prefix = substituent(s) Second Name = type of chain In the naming process we start with the First name: The core skeleton of an organic compound is called its root or parent chain. This refers to the simple skeleton or backbone of the molecule, upon which all the functional groups and substituents are attached. Continue reading >>

    I've had ketones (anywhere between moderate and large) for the last two weeks, and have no idea how I can get rid of them. The drs have called them "starvation" ketones because they are due to not being able to eat properly, and have nothing to do with my bgls, but I'm still finding it extremely difficult to eat, so I cant get rid of them that way.
    I was wondering if anybody had any ideas on how to flush ketones from the system? Theyre a bit of a worry because I've had a couple of hypos, and am not feeling them at all while I have the ketones...
    Thanks lovelies,

    If you aren't eating what your body needs to stabilize your weight, then you will always produce ketones. As your body breaks down fat for energy it creates a ketone as a byproduct. Therefore you CANNOT eliminate them without eating normal again.

Insulin is a kind of hormone produced by your body to keep your blood sugar level under control. Whenever you eat, your body starts digesting the food and releases tiny bouts of micronutrients (glucose, fatty acids or amino acids) into your blood stream. To counter this increase, your body triggers an insulin response to instruct the liver to ...
