Hydrocarbon species (also known as paraffins) with general formula C where is an integer. Alkanes contain only saturated bonds and are relatively unreactive in the atmosphere, where they react by hydrogen abstraction to form alkyl radicals. Major sources include natural gas emissions, biomass burning, evaporative emissions, and fuel combustion.
( AL- KAE-NS ) ALKANES ARE MOLECULES, MADE OF CARBON & HYDRON ATOMS THAT HAVE THE GENERAL FORMULA, ( N ) CBN + ( 2N+2 ) HDR WHEREIN: N = THE NUMBER OF CARBON ATOMS
The homologous group of linear saturated aliphatic hydrocarbons having the general formula C(n)H(2n+2). Alkanes can be straight or branched chains or ring structures. Also called paraffins.
Alkanes are hydrocarbons which have a single bond between the carbon atoms, i.e. they are saturated organic compounds.
This is the correct chemical term for compounds known as paraffins. They are considered the simplest organic compounds and are a family of chain hydrocarbons having the general formula C2H2n+2. All of the bonds are single bonds (-C-H-, and -C-C-). The chains can be straight or branched. The smaller members (less than 4 carbons) are gases, while larger ones (five to seventeen carbons) are liquids. Beyond seventeen carbons the alkanes are waxy solids. Some simple alkanes are listed below
Hydrocarbon molecules with the maximum ratio of hydrogen to carbon. The general formula for alkanes is CnH2n+2, where n is 1, 2, 3, etc.
hydrocarbon having the general Formula Cnttzn+z, also called a paraffin.
A class of relatively unreactive hydrocarbons having the general formula CnH2n+2.
Hydrocarbons in which there are only single bonds between carbon atoms.
Alkanes are saturated hydrocarbons. This means that each carbon atom has four bonds to other atoms. Useful products from oil
A group of hydrocarbons with the general formula CnH(2n+2). Alkanes contain no carbon-carbon multiple bonds; common examples include methane and propane.
