    Hi, I'm trying to name this molecule so I can look it up online, but I'm not exactly sure how to do it...

    So it's a 4 carbon chain. On the 2nd carbon, there is a ketal protecting group--there are 2 O's connected to the C to form a 5 member ring. On the 4th carbon of the chain, there are 2 phenyls and 1 OH group.

    Anyone know how to call this?

    Anyone? :( I know the MCAT will probably not ask something so complex, but yeah.
