Clathrate hydrate research is done by Professor Ken Janda here at UC Irvine. Look up clathrate hydrate
with a general search of the internet and at Professor Janda's Research. Look at text and structures posted on
the Gas Hydrate Home and the Clathrate Hydrate Structure webpages (make sure you scroll all the way to
the bottom). The ethyl (CH3CH2–) end of the ethanol molecule (CH3CH2OH) is behaving much like
the propane (CH3CH2CH3) and methane (CH4) gases that Prof. Janda's group uses to form clathrates.

These hydrocarbons(propane, methane, and ethyl) are all nonpolar and, therefore, do not contain any significant
dipoles.

The (water, hydrocarbon) creates a cage where the water is the (host, guest)
for/of the hydrocarbon.
