Isopropyl is: CH3 - CH - CH3 |Heptane is: CH3 - CH2 - CH2 - CH2 - CH2 - CH2 - CH3Then 2,2 isopropyl heptane is:CH3 - CH - CH3 | CH3 - C - CH2 - CH2 - CH2 - CH2 - CH3 |CH3 - CH - CH3.There you can expect that the higher carbon chain has 8 carbon atoms.So the correct name is of an octane.I'm going to rearrange the string to show the 8 carbon of the chain in a row: CH3 CH3 | | CH3 - CH - C - CH2 - CH2 - CH2 - CH2 - CH3 | CH3 - CH - CH3Now, you can see that the correct name is 3 isopropyl - 2, 3 dimethyl octane
