Overview

Learning organic chemistry nomenclature is not extremely difficult and most students acquire the basics quickly. Unfortunately a good percentage of students mangle the format, punctuation and/or spelling, losing valuable points on exams and quizzes. With this in mind a new question type was designed to reinforce IUPAC nomenclature with an emphasis on formatting and punctuation. Students must construct names by dragging and dropping parent chains, prefixes, suffixes and punctuation symbols to form the correct name.
