I was trying to write a name for a synthetic molecule in QM9 dataset. The molecule is:

enter image description here

is 3-aminooxolane-2-carbonitrile a correct name for this?

  • $\begingroup$ I wonder what dataset do you mean. I've found one with $\ce{C7H10O2}$ isomers. I've also searched through huge GDB-17 (no match). $\endgroup$ – mykhal Jun 5 at 14:56
  • $\begingroup$ .. I mean, no exact match, bu too many substructure matches :) $\endgroup$ – mykhal Jun 5 at 15:20

(note: The structure representation is suspicious and confusing. Linear nitrile $\ce{-C#N}$ group is "broken". But I see some software products generate such representation automatically.)

If the structure is really meant saturated, no stereochemistry is indicated.

3-aminooxolane-2-carbonitrile
3-aminooxolane-2-carbonitrile

(Watch the typo in your proposal …oxalane.) But it's not present at PubChem. (SMILES: N#CC1OCCC1N)

 

Maybe, if unsatured, furan derivative is meant:

3-aminofuran-2-carbonitrile
3-aminofuran-2-carbonitrile
