Nomenclature of Assemblies of Identical Units
Rule C-73. Derivatives of Assemblies of Identical Units 73.1 - When assemblies named in accordance with Rule C-72 contain substituents in the identical units in addition to principal
groups, these substituents are named by use of prefixes. These prefixes are assigned the lowest locants available after priority has been given to the principal groups and the linking radical.
Note: Assemblies of identical units linked by bi- or multi-valent radicals where the individual units contain different numbers of the principal group are named by the procedure given in
Examples to Rule C-73.1
