    yes

    Is chloroethane an alkane?

    Thanks

  • chemistry - ,

    yes it is an alkane...it even has a
    -ane ending.

  • chemistry - ,

    NO it is NOT a carboxylic acid because instead of a -COOH it has a SOOH

  • chemistry - ,

    I would call chloroethane an alkyl chloride. If alkanes are defined as hydrocarbons, and this compound also has Cl, then it is not an alkane.

  • chemistry - ,

    Hm..so then the alkyl halide is a derivative of an alkane. (slaps forehead for forgetting this)

  • chemistry - ,

    Yes, alkyl halides are made from alkanes (at least they are sometimes).
