Understanding Hydrocarbons

Hydrocarbons are made up of carbon and hydrogen atoms and are generally colorless and hydrophobic with usually weak odors. Hydrocarbons are reduced into three categories: alkanes, alkenes, and alkynes.¬† The most common hydrocarbon is methane, the primary component of natural gas and the simplest alkane. The general application for methane is its release into the…
