CHEM 101: Organic Compounds: Alkane Groups
In organic chemistry there are multiple groups and classifications of
organic compounds, but let us go in-depth about each group and begin with
the simplest groups of them all, the alkane groups.
An alkane group has ONLY SINGLE BONDS and DO NOT FORM RING
STRUCTURES. All alkanes are linear in structure and all compounds within
the alkane group end in -ane. Simple alkane groups can simply be named
upon how many carbon atoms there are in the molecule. Examples include:
Pentane (Penta,
the Greek prefix for 5)
