29. HSC "ormu#a Synta$ %or Hy&ro'ar(on S)e'ies

Identification of species in HSC Chemistry is based on unique chemical formulae for each different species. This idea works fine with basic inorganic chemicals, but there are some problems with complicated organic compounds. The structural formula may be too long and inconvenient to use and there may be several different species for the same cross formula. nother problem is the large number of synonymes for many organic compounds. Therefore 'ross %ormu#as *ith s)e'i%i' su%%i$ have been used in the HSC database for the most of the organic compounds, see Chapter !".!.". This appendi# will give more information on the synta# for organic species and instructions how to find a specific compound from the database. Chemical and common names, as well as C S numbers, are given for the most of the species in the HSC database. They will help a lot to identify the compounds. The species in the HSC database are arranged in alphabetical order by chemical formulae and suffi#es. $or e#ample, %&'thyl&",!&dimethylben(en C")H"%*%'"!+,-. is before the -utylben(ene C")H"%*--. in the species list. The chemical names of the species are usually based on I/0 C " rules. These may be summari(ed as follows1 . find the longest carbon chain in the compound, -. name each appendage group which is attached to this principal chain, C. alphabeti(e the appendage groups and +. number the principal chain from one end in such a way that the lower number is used at the first point of difference in the two possible series of locates. functional group in the hydrocarbon, either a double bond, a hydro#y group or an amino group will determine both the characteristics and the name of the compound. The functional group will have the lowest number in the principal chain of the hydrocarbon. If there are several functional groups in the compound, the name of the com& pound is determined according to the strongest functional group. $or e#ample, we have aminoacids, which contain both amino and acid groups, but they are called acids because the acid group is stronger than the amino group.

29.1 Basic hydrocarbons, CxHy

2aming and marking a basic hydrocarbon begins from the alkanes homologues series. lkanes, alkenes and alkynes are marked by similar letters, but cannot be mi#ed up because their chemical formulas differ in the number of hydrogen atoms. Similarly the appendage groups derived from alkanes use the very same letters. 3emember that the number of appendage groups does not affect the alphabetical order of the appendage groups in the chemical name. 2umbers are also marked. $or e#ample 4&'thyl&!,%&dimethylpentane is marked +,2-./P. 2otice also that in the chemical name there is a comma separating the different numbers not a point. 5,ono6 is seldom used in the names of hydrocarbons and e#ists often only in the deuterium compound names. Sometimes straight chain alkanes have the n character in their name, like the n&butane, which means a normal butane, so the compound is not the isobutane. In the HSC n is not used in the compound names. Cyclocompounds are marked with the C character, for e#ample, cyclobutane is marked C0. There are also deuterium compounds in the HSC database. Their formula is the same as the corresponding hydrogen formula, but deuterium is marked with the . character. If there is a double bond in the compound there may be a chance that there are two different stereoisomers, cis and trans or 7 and '. These isomers are named and marked as different compounds and the ', t, 1 or , character is located before the actual compound name. If there is a chiral C&atom in the hydrocarbon then the compound is optically active. The absolute configuration of the compound is determined by . and R characters before the actual name of the compound. 8ptically active isomers interact with plane polari(ed light a different way, and that is marked by - and 2 in the isomer name. 9arge hydrocarbon compounds can be very complicated. The appendage group may have its own appendage groups and there might be parentheses in the compound name: parentheses are not, however, used in the suffi#.

29.1.1 Appendage groups

Common alkane type appendage groups are the iso&group, sec&group and tert&group. These are used in the common name, but not in the chemical name.

-en(enes are marked 0 . In the large compounds there might be a need to consider ben(ene as an appendage group in which case it is marked P, phenyl&. If there are only two appendage groups, the name of the ben(ene compound can be formed by the ortho& meta& para& system. 8rtho& *shortened &o&., appendage groups are in the " and ! positions, in meta& *shortened & m&., they are in the " and 4 positions and in para& *shortened & )&. they are in the " and % positions.
