    Your help is much appreciated.

    How can I name these compounds?

    Compound 1

    Code:
    CH3-CH2-O-CH2-CH
                  |
                  O
    My guess is ethoxyethanal.
    Compound 2

    Code:
    CH3-C-CH2-C-O-H
        ║     ║
        O     O
    My guess is ethanoylethanoic acid.
    Compound 3

    Code:
           O
           ║
    H-N-CH-C-O-H
      | |
      H CH3
    My guess is 2-aminopropanoic acid.
    Compound 4

    Code:
    CH3-CH2-O-C-CH3
              ║
              O
    My guess is ethoxyethanone.
    Compound 5

    Code:
                 H
                 |
            O  H-N  O     O
            ║    |  ║     ║
      CH3-O-C-CH-CH-C-CH2-C-O-H
              |
    CH3-O-CH2-CH-C6H5
    What is this?
    Thanks much.

    p.s. Any free software to draw things like these?

    Compound 1 - you're right

    Compound 2 - 3-oxobutanoic acid, common name - acetoacetic acid

    Compound 3 - you're right; it's aminoacid - alanine

    Compund 4 - no, it's an ester - ethyl acetate

    Compound 5 - IUPAC name: 4-amino-7-methoxy-5-(methoxycarbonyl)-3-oxo-6-phenylheptanoic acid
