Question

What is the name of the above compound?


  1. Butanol

  2. Propanal

  3. Butaldehyde

  4. Butanal


Solution

The correct option is D

Butanal


There are 4 carbon atoms (root word: but-) linked with only single bonds in the main carbon chain, hence a saturated molecule. Therefore, the prefix used is -an-, also the functional group is aldehyde (suffix: -al). Hence, the name of the compound is butanal.
