Alkane Quizzes & Trivia

Alkanes are the simplest organic molecules, consisting of only carbon and hydrogen and with only single bonds between carbon atoms. They are called saturated hydrocarbons because there is a hydrogen in every possible location, and are used as the basis for naming the majority of organic compounds.

As chemistry wizard, you should know the answers to questions like: “How many carbon atoms must be present in an alkane for the molecule to show structural isomerism?”, “What is the general term used to describe an alkane in a ring structure?”

“What is the trend in boiling points for straight chain alkanes?”, and “In general terms, what is the name given to the product when an alkane reacts with a halogen?”. Take these quizzes to find out how much alkanes do you really know!
