alkane

 [al´kān]
a saturated hydrocarbon, i.e., one that has no carbon-carbon multiple bonds.

al·kane

(al'kān),
The general term for a saturated acyclic hydrocarbon; for example, propane, butane.

alkane

/al·kane/ (al´kān) any of a class of saturated hydrocarbons with a straight or branched chain structure, of the general formula CnH2n + 2.

alkane

a saturated aliphatic hydrocarbon containing no double or triple bonds in the carbon chain, such as propane. Also called paraffin.

alkane

Any of a number of saturated aliphatic (straight-chain) hydrocarbons of the methane series (methane, ethane, propane, butane, pentane, hexane, septane, octane, nonane, decane, etc.), in which the carbons are joined to other carbons by single bonds.

alkane (alˑ·kānˈ),

n water-insoluble, saturated hydrocarbon compound, with the general chemical formula CnH2n+2. Hexane (C6H14) is used in the solvent extraction or enfleurage process. See also enfleurage.

From these total 26 volatile compounds, 8 compounds have been identified namely furaldehyde for peak 1, trans-2-hexen-1-ol for peak 3, 3-octanal for peak 5, 2-nonanone for peak 8, decanal for peak 12, 2-undecanone for peak 15, pentadecane for peak 19 and hexadecane for peak 20.
The compounds were found to be hexadecane, 3-octanol, hexanal, pentadecane, 3-hexene-1-ol, 2-undecanone, 2-heptanone, butanal, 2-nonanone, 1-heptanal, furaldehyde, 3-methyl-1-butanal, trans-3-hexene-1-ol, octanal and decanal were the major volatile organic compounds in these species.
However pentadecane (C15:0) and 1-tetradecene (C14:1) were derived from palmitic acid, with Cn-1 hydrocarbons (C15:0) having higher amounts than Cn-2 (C14:1) (Table 3).
In the same way pentadecane (C15:0) is obtained in high amount as radiation induced product of palmitic acid but due to the solvent interference as explained for stearic acid it cannot be used for radiolytic application studies.
The identified hydrocarbons in all electron beam irradiated beef jerky samples at all doses included pentadecane (C15:0), 1-tetradecene (C14:1), 1,7-hexadecadiene (C16:2), 1-hexadecene (C16:1), 8-heptadecene (C17:1) and heptadecane (C17:0) (Table-4).
The third fatty acid which gave significant amount hydrocarbons by electron beam irradiation was palmitic acid with pentadecane (C15:0) and 1-tetradecene (C14:1) as radiolytic products showing high content in case of Cn-2 than Cn-1.
The result showed that the components were formaldehyde, hydrazine, 1,2-dimethyl-, acetic acid, 2-isopropoxyethylamine, formic acid, acetic acid, phenol, benzaldehyde, 2-hydroxy-, phenol, 4-methyl-, benzoic acid, 2-furancarboxaldehyde, 5-(hydroxymethyl)-, methenamine, salicyl alcohol, phenol, 2,6-dimethoxy-, benzaldehyde, 3-hydroxy 4-methoxy-, phenol, 2-methoxy-4-(1-propenyl)-(e), ethanone, 1-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)-, phenol, 2,4-bis(1,1-dimethylethyl), benzeneacetic acid, 4-hydroxy-3-methoxy-, methyl ester, phenol, 2,6-dimethoxy-4-(2-propenyl)-, pentadecane, 2,6,10,14-tetramethyl, ethanol, 2-(dodecyloxy)-, phthalic acid, isobutyl nonyl ester, 1,4-dimethyl-8-isopropylidenetricyclo[5.
After 20-40 minutes of exposure, 96% showed hydrocarbons of longer chain lengths including tetradecane, pentadecane and hexadecane.
The identified major hydrocarbons in the fraction obtained at 100C ranging from 1-hexene (C6) to pentadecane (C15) which are mostly aliphatic saturated and unsaturated in nature.
