Nomenclature priorities are in order of the degree of oxidation of the carbon atom.
I am not sure if it's advisable to just take it as it is and use it or try to understand the basis of the functional group prioritization. I guess the latter interest me. So looking at the priorities for functional groups,
Alkene has higher priority than Alkyne and followed by Alkane. I started reading some materials about Oxidative Cleavage of Double Bonds and rest of the reactions, which kinda went way over my head.
Can someone explain, how and why the carbon oxidation in Alkynes are lower than Alknenes? Or put in another word, why would Alkene carbon oxidate faster than Alknenes?
