  • Hydrocarbons
    • Boiling Point.
      • viscosty
        • flammability
    • Some properties depend on molecule size
    • Two main families
      • Alkenes
        • Single bonds
          • Two carbon atoms have a double bond
            • 'C = C'
      • Alkanes
        • Found in natural gases
          • single chemical bond
        • Methane
          • Ethane
            • Propane
    • Separated into fractions
      • each contain molecules with a similar number of carbon atoms
      • Fractional Distillation
        • each contain molecules with a similar number of carbon atoms
        • evaporating oil, allow to condense at different temperatures
