## What is Iupac name example?

The IUPAC name is therefore: 2,5,5-trimethyl-2-hexene. In example (2) the longest chain incorporating both carbon atoms of the double bond has a length of five. There is a seven-carbon chain, but it contains only one of the double bond carbon atoms. Consequently, the root name of this compound will be pentene.
