ethane is CH3-CH3, an alkane ethylene is CH2=CH2, an alkene.
Ethene has a double bond and is an alkene whereas ethane has no double bond and is an alkane.
Methane, ethane, propane, butane are shorter chain hydrocarbons. Their alkene and alkyne equivalents are too.
It is an alkene
If it follows the general formula CnH2n, then it is an alkene. C5H10 is pentene - a member of the alkene family.
Which alkene? Ethylene, propylene, eicosene???
Alkene is an unsaturated chemical compound.
Ethane - A colorless odorless alkane gas used as fuel. Ethene - A flammable colorless gaseous alkene; obtained from petroleum and natural gas and used in manufacturing many other chemicals; sometimes used as an anesthetic. Ethyne - A colorless flammable gas used chiefly in welding and in organic synthesis.
This could be the molecular formula for an alkene, but it is also the molecular formula of cyclohexane, which is not an alkene. Therefore, the question has no unambiguous answer.
Ethane has no structural isomers and hence there is no n-ethane and iso-ethane.
what are the advantages of ethane?
Yes it is an alkene. It is in fact the smallest alkene molecule. Its chemical formula is C2 H4. Hope this helps :P
in first step prepare ethane to chloro ethane fallowed by wurtz reaction. chloro ethane can be prepared free radical reaction btw ethane and chlorine
Yes, if the alkane is cyclic and the alkene is not.
Your question is about the properties of both 'ethane and ethane', Ethane is a colorless odorless gas that is used as a refrigerant and a fuel. It is a byproduct of the refining process and is isolated from natural gas.
C4H8 is an alkene because the general formula of an alkene (CnH2n) applies to it but not he formula of alkane (CnH2n+2)
Ethane is an allotrop of carbon.
Ethane is insoluble in water.
alkene because its not saturated
yes alkene contains double bond.
physical properties of ethane
Ethane is a nonconductive compound.
