Asked in Chemistry
What are the different compounds containing hydrogen and carbon?
Compounds that contain only hydrogen and carbon are called hydrocarbons. There are many of these, saturated hydrocarbons are termed alkanes, examples range from methane CH4 the smallest to polymers such as polythene (C2H4)n , others include the unsaturated hydrocarbons with double or triple bonds (alkenes and alkynes) such as ethylene C2H4, acetylene C2H2

Which hydrocarbon family contains only single bonds between carbon atoms?
Asked in Organic Chemistry, Hydrocarbons
What is meant by saturated and unsaturated hydrocarbons?
Saturated hydrocarbons have every possible bonding site on the carbon backbone that could bond to a hydrogen bonded to a hydrogen. All carbon-carbon bonds are single. These hydrocarbons are rigid and have high melting temperatures. Lard, Crisco, Butter, and Margarine are saturated. Unsaturated hydrocarbons don't and therefor contain one or more double or triple carbon-carbon bond(s). These hydrocarbons are "floppy" and have lower melting temperatures. Cooking and Salad oils are unsaturated.
