How many structural isomers are there for butane?

There are two structural isomers approved by IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) 1.) n-butane (normal butane) is a straight chain 2.) iso-butane (or methyl-propane) is a chain of three with one carbon attached to the middle of the chain


How many non cyclic isomers are there for Butane?

Only two, butane and isobutane


What is the difference between the two isomers of butane?

basically there is no difference between the two isomers of butane .actually isomers are similar compounds with different possible skeletal structures ;for example ,butane is a hydrocarbon with 4 carbon atoms ,so its possible isomers are- n-butane and iso-butane.


Why doesn't butane has isomers?

The name butane is applied by IUPAC to the unbranched form of B4H10.However many chemists use the name butane to refer to both isomers ofB4H10 , n-butane the unbranched form and iso-butane the branched form.


How many structural isomers are there for hydrocarbons having the molecular formula C4H10?

Structural isomers have same molecular formula but different structural formula. Structural isomers for Butane having formula C4H10 are two. One is n-butane and the other is iso-butane.


Is Butane a Homogeneous mixture or Heterogeneous mixture?

Butane is homogeneous. Butane may mean n-butane, iso-butane or a mixture of the two isomers. If the sample were a mixture of the two isomers then it would be a homgeneous mixture.
