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.
