enter image description here I circled what I believe to be the chiral centers and I added the locants for the longest carbon chain. One of the chiral centers is in a side chain, so that carbon doesn't have a locant. How should its absolute configuration be included into the IUPAC name?

    $\begingroup$ Side chain have their locants. Your question is rather how to number them and even more general, how to number/call a molecule and has little to do with chirality. $\endgroup$ – Alchimista Dec 5 '19 at 7:56

    $\begingroup$ @AniruddhaDeb look, you can’t just change somebody else’s question like that to fit your answer. $\endgroup$ – orthocresol Dec 5 '19 at 17:16
