CO ranks before OH, so that we write 2-hydroxycyclohexanone and not 2-oxocyclohexanol; in the same way OH ranks before NH2, so that p- HO·C6H 4 •NH2 is p-aminophenol and not p-hydroxyaniline (an example which shows that the seniority order applies even to semitrivial names). , the group is considered to replace hydrogen, as in CHs·CHs ethane ~ CHs•CH2·0H ethanol, or CoHo benzene~ C0H 5Cl chlorobenzene. When the carbon atom of a group in Table 4 is in parentheses, that atom is not added by the suffix, as when CoH13·CH3 heptane gives CoH13•C02H heptanoic acid; when the same group is also listed without parentheses, then the prefix or suffix does add that carbon atom, as in C9H~ quinoline ~ 8-C9H 8N •C0 2H quinoline-8-carboxylic acid, or (CaH7)2CH2 heptane ~ (H02C•CH2•CH2·CH2)2CH· C0 2H 1,4, 7- triheptane-carboxylic acid.

Hydrogen carbonate ion. (b) Double salts, etc. A somewhat complex set of IUPAC rules published in 1957 was much simplified in 1965 by extensive use of the alphabetical order. , all the cations are now to be cited first, in alphabetical order, except that H+ is named last. Then all the anions are listed, these also in their alphabetical order. Water considered to be co-ordinately bound to a specific ion is cited as aqua- (note the change from aquo- that was customary before 1965). Numerical prefixes can be omitted if the valencies are constant or stated.
