what is the structure of a saturated molecule with 6 carbons and only hydrogens?

Would it just be 6 carbons in a row then CH3-CH2-CH2-CH2-CH2-CH3? I confused because it says saturated, what changes, how will it look?

What is the structure of a poly-unsaturated molecule with 6 carbon and only hydrogens?

  1. What you have written is n-hexane. That is a saturated hydrocarbon. It is saturated if it has no double or triple bonds. There are isomers of n-hexane and those are saturated also.

    I can't seem to figure out the name of this organic molecule. I know it's an amine, but that's it. There are two methyls (CH3) attached to a CH, followed by (in order) NH, CH2, CH2, CH2, and CH3. (ignore the ^^^, I had to use them

    I am really stuck on these so will try and explain further and use dots. 1. I have come up with normal heptane on this but not sure .......CH3...CH3 .......|.....| CH3-CH-C-CH2-C-CH2-CH3 ....|....|...| ....CH3..CH2.CH2 .........|
  9. Chemistry

    I am rewriting this question and using dots to make sure that everything lines up correctly so please ignore the dots. 1. name this hydrocarbon .......CH3...CH3 .......|.....| CH3-CH-C-CH2-C-CH2-CH3 ....|..|.....| ....CH3CH2..CH2
