Prediction of the Flash Point of Binary and Ternary Straight-Chain Alkane Mixtures
Isomerization , the chemical process by which a compound is transformed into any of its isomeric forms, i. Butane and isobutane have widely different properties. Butane boils at More important from the commercial standpoint, branched-chain hydrocarbons are better motor fuels than their straight-chain isomers. The isomerization of straight-chain hydrocarbons to their corresponding branched-chain isomers is an important step called reforming in gasoline manufacture.

Li, P. Duan, K. Sun, X. The flash point is an important physical property used to estimate the fire hazard of a flammable liquid. To avoid the occurrence of fire or explosion, many models are used to predict the flash point; however, these models are complex, and the calculation process is cumbersome. For pure flammable substances, the research for predicting the flash point is systematic and comprehensive. For multicomponent mixtures, especially a hydrocarbon mixture, the current research is insufficient to predict the flash point.

Alkenes have at least one double bond and alkynes have at least one triple bond. Naming the alkanes, alkenes and alkynes is the Alkane molecules can be represented by displayed formulae in which each atom is shown as its symbol C or H and the covalent bonds between them by a straight line.
Compounds isolated from nonliving systems, such as rocks and ores, the atmosphere, and the oceans, were labeled inorganic. For many years, scientists thought organic compounds could be made by only living organisms because they possessed a vital force found only in living systems. What he expected is described by the following equation. This result led to a series of experiments in which a wide variety of organic compounds were made from inorganic starting materials. The vital force theory gradually went away as chemists learned that they could make many organic compounds in the laboratory. Today organic chemistry is the study of the chemistry of the carbon compounds, and inorganic chemistry is the study of the chemistry of all other elements. It may seem strange that we divide chemistry into two branches—one that considers compounds of only one element and one that covers the plus remaining elements.
Alkanes are very versatile and are being used as solvents, heating oils, fuels, in fat synthesis , in the synthesis of fatty acids by air oxidation, in the manufacture of albumen, in the transformation to olefins, etc. The latter are starting materials for the preparation of alkyl benzenes which play an important role in the synthesis of degradable detergents. The largest amount of methane produced is used for heating purposes. Only a small part is further processed to yield, for example, hydrogen cyanide, acetylene, chloroalkanes, carbon disulfide, and carbon black.
The largest database 1 of organic compounds lists about 10 million substances, which include compounds originating from living organisms and those synthesized by chemists. The number of potential organic compounds has been estimated 2 at 10 60 —an astronomically high number. The existence of so many organic molecules is a consequence of the ability of carbon atoms to form up to four strong bonds to other carbon atoms, resulting in chains and rings of many different sizes, shapes, and complexities. The simplest organic compounds contain only the elements carbon and hydrogen, and are called hydrocarbons.
Most reactions of organic compounds take place at or adjacent to a functional group. In order to establish a baseline of behavior against which these reactions may be ranked, we need to investigate the reactivity of compounds lacking any functional groups. Such compounds are necessarily hydrocarbons , made up of chains and rings of carbon atoms bonded to a full complement of hydrogen atoms all carbons are sp 3 hybridized. Hydrocarbons of this kind are classified as alkanes or cycloalkanes , depending on whether the carbon atoms of the molecule are arranged only in chains or also in rings. Although these hydrocarbons have no functional groups, they constitute the framework on which functional groups are located in other classes of compounds, and provide an ideal starting point for studying and naming organic compounds.

These effects depend on the size of the hydrocarbon molecules and where on or in the body they are applied. Alkanes of low molar mass—those with from 1 to approximately 10 or so carbon atoms—are gases or light liquids that act as anesthetics. Swallowed, liquid alkanes do little harm while in the stomach.
Танкадо прислал нам письмо. ГЛАВА 122 - Шесть минут! - крикнул техник. Сьюзан отдала приказ: - Перепечатайте сверху. Нужно читать по вертикали, а не по горизонтали. Пальцы Соши стремительно забегали по клавишам. - Так посылал свои распоряжения Цезарь! - сказала Сьюзан. - Количество букв всегда составляло совершенный квадрат.
Слушай, парень, я американец из Мериленда. Если я и полицейский, то уж точно не здешний, как ты думаешь. Эти слова, похоже, озадачили панка. - Меня зовут Дэвид Беккер. - Беккер улыбнулся и над столом протянул парню руку. Панк брезгливо ее пожал.
