Branched Structures

Top  Previous  Next

Branched structures are slightly more difficult to enter but are not too hard if you remember the basic rule


Enter a branch completely before starting the next branch.


For example, to enter 4-methyl-2-heptene


enter the structure up to the green elements, then choose one of the branches to enter - we have chosen the red branch.  One that branch is complete, we enter the blue branch.




Quite complicated structures can be entered in this way - citric acid for example.
