Alkynes and are
Alkynes are traditionally known as acetylenes, although the name acetylene also refers specifically to C < sub > 2 </ sub > H < sub > 2 </ sub >, known formally as ethyne using IUPAC nomenclature.
Alkynes characteristically undergo reactions that show that they are " doubly unsaturated ," meaning that each alkyne unit is capable of adding two equivalents of H < sub > 2 </ sub >, halogens or related HX reagents ( X = halide, pseudohalide, etc .).

Greasy soils, which are typified by hydrocarbons and fats ( esters of glycerol with long-chain organic acids ).
Alkanes ( also known as paraffins or saturated hydrocarbons ) are chemical compounds that consist only of hydrogen and carbon atoms and are bonded exclusively by single bonds ( i. e., they are saturated compounds ) without any cycles ( or loops ; i. e., cyclic structure ).
Saturated hydrocarbons can also combine any of the linear, cyclic ( e. g., polycyclic ) and branching structures, and they are still alkanes ( no general formula ) as long as they are acyclic ( i. e., having no loops ). They also have single covalent bonds between their carbons.
Most aliphatic compounds are flammable, allowing the use of hydrocarbons as fuel, such as methane in Bunsen burners and as liquified natural gas ( LNG ), and acetylene in welding.
Plastics are made from fossil hydrocarbons, and carbon fiber, made by pyrolysis of synthetic polyester fibers is used to reinforce plastics to form advanced, lightweight composite materials.
Chemically, carotenes are polyunsaturated hydrocarbons containing 40 carbon atoms per molecule, variable numbers of hydrogen atoms, and no other elements.
Since they are hydrocarbons, and therefore contain no oxygen, carotenes are fat-soluble and insoluble in water ( in contrast with other carotenoids, the xanthophylls, which contain oxygen and thus are less chemically hydrophobic ).
Coal tars are complex and variable mixtures of phenols, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons ( PAHs ), and heterocyclic compounds, about 200 substances in all.
Oxygen is more electronegative than carbon, thus the hydrogens alpha to ethers are more acidic than in simple hydrocarbons.
Hydrogen is the most common fuel, but hydrocarbons such as natural gas and alcohols like methanol are sometimes used.
SOFCs are capable of internally reforming light hydrocarbons such as methane ( natural gas ), propane and butane.
Aromatic hydrocarbons ( arenes ), alkanes, alkenes, cycloalkanes and alkyne-based compounds are different types of hydrocarbons.
The classifications for hydrocarbons defined by IUPAC nomenclature of organic chemistry are as follows:
# Saturated hydrocarbons ( alkanes ) are the simplest of the hydrocarbon species and are composed entirely of single bonds and are saturated with hydrogen.
