FIRST 8 ALKANES IN THE HOMOLOGOUS SERIES


Do you know the first 8 alkanes?, or should I say how well do you know the alkanes family very? I guess you really dont know much about the alkanes family.

This article will try to explain some few tips before launching you into the first eight alkanes family member.
Before we see the first 8 alkanes in the homologous series, let’s get to know more about alkane.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS PHYSICS, HERE ARE 4 BEST DEFINITIONS OF PHYSICS FOR YOU. NUMBER 4 WILL SUPRISE YOU.


Alkane are also called paraffin. The term paraffin is used for either a wax like substance or group of compound particularly alkanes so as to indicate alkanes low affinity or reactivity.

Alkanes molecular formula


On further research, alkanes become less volatile with increasing molar mass and they are insoluble in water because of polarity.
