  1. propyl

    In organic chemistry, propyl is a three-carbon alkyl substituent with chemical formula −CH2CH2CH3 for the linear form. This substituent form is obtained by removing one hydrogen atom attached to the terminal carbon of propane. A propyl substituent is often represented in organic chemistry with the symbol Pr (not to be confused with the element praseodymium). An isomeric form of propyl is obtained by moving the point of attachment from a terminal carbon atom to the central carbon atom, named 1-methylethyl or isopropyl. To maintain four substituents on each carbon atom, one hydrogen atom has to be moved from the middle carbon atom to the carbon atom which served as attachment point in the n-propyl variant, written as −CH(CH3)2.Linear propyl is sometimes termed normal and hence written with a prefix n- (i.e., n-propyl), as the absence of the prefix n- does not indicate which attachment point is chosen, i.e. absence of prefix does not automatically exclude the possibility of it being the branched version (i.e. i-propyl or isopropyl). In addition, there is a third, cyclic, form called cyclopropyl, or c-propyl. It is not isomeric with the other two forms, having a different chemical formula (−C3H5 vs −C3H7), not just a different connectivity of the atoms.

  1. propyl

    Propyl is a functional group in organic chemistry with the molecular formula -C3H7. It is an alkyl group derived from propane, which consists of three carbon atoms and lacks a hydrogen atom. Propyl can exist in two forms: a straight chain (n-propyl) or a branched chain (iso-propyl). It is often attached to other molecules as a substitute.

Webster Dictionary

  1. Propylnoun

    the hypothetical radical C3H7, regarded as the essential residue of propane and related compounds

  2. Etymology: [Propionic + -yl.]

  1. Propyl

    In organic chemistry, propyl is a linear three-carbon alkyl substituent with chemical formula -C3H7. It is the substituent form obtained by removing one hydrogen atom attached to the terminal carbon of propane. A propyl substituent is often represented in organic chemistry with the symbol Pr. There is an isomeric form of propyl named 1-methylethyl or isopropyl obtained by removing a hydrogen ion attached to the middle carbon of propane. Linear propyl is sometimes termed normal and written with a prefix n-. However, n- is redundant because the absence of any prefix implies an unbranched propyl. In addition there is a third, cyclic, form called cyclopropyl, or c-propyl. It is not isomeric with the other two forms, having the chemical formula -C3H5.
