What type of isomerism is shown by 1-bromo propane and 2-bromo propane?
Position isomerism, an example of structural isomerism, occurs when a functional group is in a different positions on the same carbon chain.At A Level, you find out about position isomers involving other functional groups in aliphatic (straight- or open-chain) compounds, and in aromatic compounds.
Alkanes have a general formula:
Alkanes are saturated hydrocarbons having C-C single bond and general formula CnH2n+2.
An allotrope of carbon which conducts electricity is:
Graphite can conduct electricity because in graphite every carbon atom is bonded to 3 other carbon atoms and has 1 free electron. This free electrons help in conducting electricity.
Butane has molecular formula:
Butane is a saturated hydrocarbon. But + ane = Butane.
The property of carbon of self combination is called:
Carbon has the unique ability to form bonds with other atoms of carbon, giving rise to large molecules. This property is called catenation or self linking ability of carbon.
