NOMENCLATURE OF ORGANIC COMPOUNDS follows recommendations of IUPAC in naming organic compounds, carbocations etc. A diagrammatic presentation is given to create interest in the topic along with a comparison of different nomenclature operations for some compounds with some typical structures. Two sets of compounds having nearly same skeleton but different characteristic groups are worked out to illustrate how the choice of parent has to be changed with addition/.deletion of such group(s). A number of examples are solved in a systematic step-by-step approach. Deriving structure systematically from the given name is also illustrated.The book aimed at the undergraduate students, illustrates the rules of various nomenclature with simple examples.KEY FEATURES:* Exercises with various types of problems including multiple-choice question. * Hints are given for solutions to many selected problems for exercises* Naming of carbohydrate including polysaccharides and the naming of amino acids* Peptides (including polypeptides) are now included
