Carboxylic Acids and their Derivatives
Hydroxy, Alkoxy and Oxo Acids Rule C-411 411.1 - Examples of trivial names for hydroxy and alkoxy carboxylic acids and for the corresponding acyl radicals are given in
Table VII. The numbering of aliphatic hydroxy, alkoxy, and oxo acids is made so as to give the number 1 to a carboxyl group and the lowest possible locants to hydroxy, alkoxy, oxo and
other groups [see Rule C-15.11(d)].
