What alkane has five carbon atoms?

All of the following are non cyclic alkanes with five carbon atoms: pentane, methyl butane, 2,2-dimethyl propane, and 2-ethyl propane. If cyclic alkanes are included, there are also cyclopentane, methyl cyclobutane, ethyl cyclopropane, and dimethyl cyclopropane.

Why cyclopropane behaves like unsaturated compound?

Cyclopropane have MF of C3H6,2 H short of its parent derivative Propane C3H8.D ring in d structure of cyclopropane shows excess electrons which makes it more reative than n-propane.D ring can b broken on hydrogenation or halogenation to form a saturated HC

What is isopropane?

In theory, isopropane would most likely be the structural isomer of the organic molecule propane. (CH3CH2CH3) But because of its relatively linear structure, I'm therefore relatively certain that propane on its own does not form isomers, so isopropane does not exist, much in the same way that "isoethane" (CH3CH3) would not exist because it is a completely linear molecule. There are no other ways to arrange propane to arrive at an isomer formation.
