Hydrocarbons that don't contain benzene-like rings, in contrast to
Aliphatic hydrocarbon that consists of all single bonds.
Aliphatic hydrocarbon that contains C=C double bonds.
Aliphatic hydrocarbon that contains C-C triple bonds.
Hydrocarbons that contain benzene-like rings, in contrast to aliphatic
Stereoisomers that differ in the relative positions of substituents
about a double bond or ring.
Condensed structural formula
An abbreviated way of writing organic molecules in which C-H bonds are
omitted. C-C bonds can also be omitted.
Isomer that differs in the connectivities of atoms.
An alkane whose carbon chain loops back on itself to form a ring.
A molecule that consists only of carbon and hydrogen atoms.
Two different molecules with the same molecular formula.
A systematic method of naming organic molecules that unambiguously denotes the
connectivity of a compound.
An abbreviated way of writing organic molecules in which explicit carbon
and hydrogen atoms are left out. Carbon atoms reside at the vertices and
endpoints of lines and the number of hydrogens are implicitly known from
the tetravalence of carbon.
An internal component of a molecule of the structure -CH2-.
Straight-chain alkanes; no branching.
The study of compounds that contain carbon.
An organic compound that has no Π bonds.
Isomers that are not constitutional isomers. These differ in the
spatial arrangement of atoms.
Chemical group that branches off of the parent chain in a molecule.
A name that is acquired through common usage.
An organic compound that contains at least one Π bond.
The sum of the number of rings and Π bonds in a molecule.
