Hydrocarbons - Alkanes

Post by Nevyn on Mon Nov 17, 2014 6:21 am

For an introduction on Hydrocarbons.

Alkanes have the general formula CnH2n+2.

You can find background information on Alkanes in this wiki page.

These models show the simple forms of the Alkanes. It is possible for 3 Carbon atoms to bond at the same location which create isomers. As the chain gets longer, the number of possible isomers increases dramatically but I will try to cover some of the basic ones later. I also won't show Methane because Miles has already done so and it is a special case that does not fit into this structure.
