3-hexyne is an ALKYNE .

Its structure is CH3-CH2-C///C-CH2CH3

In the chain of six carbons (hex-) on Carbon No.3 there is a TRIPLE bond with the next carbon-(4). NB THere no hydrogens across this triple bond.

Remember in carbon chains there three types of bond ; viz. ALKANE, single bond ; ALKENE , double bond, and ALKYNE triple bond.

The most well known triple bonded gas is Acetylene, In modern nomenclature it is named , ETHYNE , its structure is H-C///C-H

It is a type of hydrocarbon under the class of alkyne with general formula CnH2n-2. It can give positional isomers as 1-hexyne, 2-hexyne and 3-hexyne. Also we can have 2 double bonds in the chain to get structural isomer, but that example will be considered under the class of alkene (diene). Hexyne has non-polar characteristics and it is insoluble in water but soluble in organic solvents

Is 1-hexyne an isotope?

No, 1-hexyne is not an isotope. Isotopes are same elements that have the same number of protons (and therefore the same chemical properties) but different numbers of neutrons. They have slightly different atomic masses due to the varying number of neutrons in their nuclei. 1-hexyne, on the other hand, is a specific chemical compound. It is an alkyne with the molecular formula C6H10 and a carbon-carbon triple bond at the first position in a hexane chain. Isotopes are not specific chemical compounds, but they are variations of elements.
