Naming Alkanes, Alkenes, and Alkynes
Overview Edit
Alkanes contain a single bond, Alkenes contain a double bond, and Alkynes contain a triple bond. In naming hydrocarbons, one must know the number of Carbons, to identify the prefix, and the number of bonds, to identify the suffix. For example, a C5H10 compound with one double bond at the first carbon would be called 1Pentene (pent indicating 5 carbons and ene indicating the double bond.)
