Synthesis of hexanal by use acetylene and alkyl halide?
Use sodium amide to deprotonate acetylene and react it with iodoethane (or equivilent) two times to form 3-hexyne. Use sodium amide again to "move" the triple bond to a terminal position (to make 1-hexyne). Reprotonate with dilute HCl. Now simply do a hydrobroation-oxydation (BH3*THF followed by H2O2 and NaOH(aq)) to yield hexanal. ...

What is Alkanes used for?
By far the most important economic use for alkanes is their use as fuels. They are also used as lubricants and as non-polar solvents. They are largely unreactive, but can react with halogens such as bromine in the presence of sunlight to form halogenoalkanes, which are much more useful in organic synthesis. ...
