What is the use of iso, sec & tert in IUPAC naming of organic compounds?
They are useful to simplify some name, like vinyl, allyl, phenyl, benzyl
instead of writing
which is 2-(1-methylethyl)propanol
you write 2-isopropylpentanol
which is the same http://molview.org/?q=2-isopropylpentanol
You can do what you want, like :
You have the prefix "neo" too, which expand the tert
