Abstract

This chapter takes an initial look at the structure and representation of functional groups. The principles of the unambiguous systematic classification and naming of organic compounds are introduced. The importance of these for accurate information transfer is highlighted. Common functional classes are detailed and, where needed, three-dimensional diagrams, oxidation states, and physical properties are introduced.
