Nomenclature of Esters
Esters are made from a carboxylic acid and an alcohol.
Esters are named as if the alkyl chain from the alcohol is a substituent. No number is assigned to this alkyl chain. This is followed by the name of the parent chain form the carboxylic acid part of the ester with an-e remove and replaced with the ending -oate.
