We will discuss in this post about the important aspects of Nomenclature in Organic Chemistry along with the kind of questions covered in JEE Mains and JEE Advanced.


As evident from the analysis of previous year papers, Nomenclature is a topic from where direct questions are sometimes asked in JEE Mains and rarely asked in JEE Advanced. But a solid command over nomenclature indirectly helps in solving problems of entire organic chemistry. It forms the base for understanding organic chemistry.


In both JEE Mains and Advanced, questions are asked from IUPAC Nomenclature of Organic Compounds. The areas to master in this are determination of longest branched chain, lowest sum rule, alphabetical order and priority order of Functional Groups. Moreover, remembering common names of frequently used compounds also helps in solving problems directly or indirectly.
