Application of the Young’s Partition Method for Combinatorial Enumeration of Gem Position Isomers of Homo Polysubstituted Linear N-Alkanes (Part II: N Even)

Author(s): Robert M. Nemba and Christiane E. Nemba

A generalized combinatorial enumeration method is proposed for counting gem position isomers (GPIs) of any homopolysubstituted linear n-alkanes (HPSNA) with the empirical formula CnH2n+2-mXm where the chain length n+ is even and where the degree of substitution m± (odd or even) satisfies the Young’s partition models m 32k± − = , m 32 2k± + = or 2k± with the restrictions m± ≥ 2 and k± ≥ 0.
