Question

Name the hydrocarbon having three carbon atoms and an -OH group attached to the terminal carbon atom.


Correct Answer
A
Propan-1-ol
Your Answer
B
Propan-1-al
Your Answer
C
Propan-1-one
Your Answer
D
Propan-1-oic acid

Solution

The correct option is C Propan-1-ol
The chemical formula of the hydrocarbon is: CH3CH2CH2OH.
  Since there are three carbon atoms in the parent chain, the root word is 'prop'.
  The -OH group present in the compound at terminal position refers to the alcohol group at first position and hence the suffix is '-1-ol'.
So, the IUPAC name of the compound is propan-1-ol.
