Aldehydes, Ketones, and their Derivatives
Carbocyclic and Heterocyclic Ketones Rule C-315 315.1 (Alternative to Rules C-314.1 and C-316.1) - Polycarbocyclic and heterocyclic ketones may be named by
use of a suffix "-one" to denote replacement of either >CH2 or >CH- in an unsaturated or aromatic system by >CO; when the ring system is aromatic the maximum number of noncumulative double bonds is
added after introduction of the >CO group(s) and any hydrogen that remains to be added is denoted as indicated hydrogen. As an exception to Rule C-15.11 (a), the carbonyl group has then
priority over indicated hydrogen for lower number.
315.2 - The following modifications (but not others) of names of carbocyclic ketones formed according to Rule C-315.1 may be used: anthrone [instead of
9(10H)-anthracenone], phenanthrone (instead of 9(10H)-phenanthrenone) .
Examples to Rule C-315.1
315.3 - The following contracted names for oxo-derivatives of heterocyclic nitrogen compounds are retained as alternatives for the systematic names, but further hydrogenated
derivatives must not be named as hydro derivatives of these shorter forms:
(Note: Indicated hydrogen is sometimes used with the above names.)
In addition, names of oxo-derivatives of fully saturated nitrogen heterocycles, which systematically end in "-idinone", are often contracted to end in "idone", and such abbreviated
names may also be used when no ambiguity thereby results.
