Alkane Names 1-20 list

Alkane family

In organic chemistry, an alkane is a saturated hydrocarbon consisting of a noncyclic open chain in which the molecule has a maximum of hydrogen atoms and therefore its single bonds.

 

 Alkanes are also known as paraffins, or collectively as "paraffin chain" and these terms can also be used for alkenes, which contain a single unbranched chain of carbon atoms, and when there are branches in the alkanes chain, it is called "isoparaffins" and alkanes belong to aliphatic compounds.
