What should be the iupac nomenclature of this compound
I think 2-hydroxy-propan-1,2,3-oic acid
The answer is 3 hydroxy 3 carboxy pentane1,5dioic acid
Sorry for late reply.
Firstly, select the longest carbon chain as the parent chain.
Since carbons of carboxylic group are involved in the parent chain, they will be used as suffixes (oic acid type).
The substitutes must be arranged according to alphabetical order
Ok no problem ,thanks bhai
Isn't it should be 2-Hydroxy-propane-1,2,3-tricarboxylic acid
