Chemical Reactions of Alkanes

Unreactive: C-C bonds non- polar. C- H non- polar as electronegativity of C and H similar. • Complete Combustion: Alkanes burn completely with plentiful supply of oxygen to produce carbon dioxide and water to give out heat. C gives CO2 and half of H gives H2O. •...

Properties of Alkanes

Alkane Use: Components of natural gas and crude oil. • Sigma Bond: The type of covalent bonds in alkanes are called sigma bond- It is overlapping of two orbitals, one from each bonding atom. Positioned on line directly between bonding atoms. Each carbon atom in alkane...
