R-3.1.4 Substituent prefix names for unsaturated/saturated parent hydrides When derived according to R-3.1.1, R-3.1.2 and R-3.1.3 above, these are formed by replacing the final "e" of the name of the unsaturated/saturated
structure by an appropriate suffix given in R-2.5.
Free valence position are preferred to positions of unsaturation denoted by the suffixes "-ene", etc., for low locant numbers. As with substituent prefixes
derived from saturated parent hydrides (see R-2.1), the free valences can be at any position on the parent structure. Accordingly, for acyclic unsaturated parent structures, all locants for
the free valences, including "1", must be cited.
