How do I recognize organic structures?

Recommended Posts

I have trouble recognizing the organic functional groups etc and what the molecule is classified as e.g ethers, esters and sometimes aldehydes and ketones. Is there a way to practice to get better without rote memorization?

Unfortunately, I doubt it.  It takes time to recognize them properly and understand the various reaction pathways from one functional group to another, but once you get there, things will become easier.
