Naming Organic Compounds Series: Video 6
This tutorial video gives you a basic approach for naming alkenes which are molecules containing pi bonds. I approach this topic using my ‘puzzle piece' approach to naming organic compounds. Included in this video are an alkene introduction including concept and calculation of hydrogen deficiency, followed by the rules and examples of naming simple alkenes, substituted alkenes, cyclic alkenes, and dienes.

iam very happy to learn from you. kindly please include more examples
It’s a pitty that you didn’t use the new IUPAC names for alkenes ( e.q. hex-2-ene) e.t.c. Otherwhise I could use these movies for my students.
Bas I included both methods in my naming
