For the above molecule, I know that the longest carbon chain has 7 carbons, so the backbone is heptane.
The two substituents are at the 4 position on the heptane.
One of the substituents is a methyl group. That much is obvious.
The other appears to be a complex substituent and is a 1-chloroethyl group.
Thus, would the name be:
I think the issue is what happens when we have different substituents with the same loctant. I've looked in one book and at all its practice problems, and this scenario never occurs.
I know that 4-methylheptane is a real compound and that its name is correct. So I am leaning toward 4,4-(1-chloroethyl)methylheptane as being a correct name; the complex substituent is correctly named; both locatants are present; everything is alphabetized; my only issue is whether I am missing some convention (e.g. should there be a dash somewhere, a comma somewhere, or what?)
