    Hi!
    Since I don't know what word I would use for a google sarch (since I don't know the name of the compound) I would like your help with this one:

    What is a molecule like:

    C-C=C-C-C-C-C-C=C
    |***** |**** ||
    C******C****C
    ||*****||**** |
    C******C****C

    called? (I haven't written all hydrogen atoms).
    I don't know if it exists, but that's indifferent.

    P.S. The *:s don't mean anything.

    1,4,7-triethylene-non-2,7-diene has my full support.

    Shouldn't the first triethylene group really be considered as part of the main carbon chain?

    i.e. 6,9-diethylene-undec-1,4,10-triene
