Answer to Question #21990 in Organic Chemistry for Alex
What factors influence volatility of hyrdrocarbons?
1. The number of Carbons in the chains (C1-C4 are gases) 2. The presence of double bond (pentane is the gas at 35 C and pentdiene (Piperylene) is a liquid) 3. Branching structure of the carbon chain (Isobutane is more volatile than butane)
