10 butadiene C4H6 Has two double bonds between two carbons. There's also a single bond between two carbons.
11 benzene C6H6 A ring of 6 carbon atoms with three double bonds and three single bonds between the carbons.
12 cyclohexane C6H12 A "rectangle" of six carbon atoms. Each carbon has two Hydrogens with it
13 ethylene C2H4 No hint
How can we change hydrocarbons into things we want?
14 In ethane, replace one hydrogen with an oxygen that
hydrogen bonded to it and you have ethyl alcohol
15 Replace a hydrogen on any hydrocarbon with an amino group. An amino group is a nitrogen atom with two hydrogens on it.
16 Ether. To make an ether, all you do is hook two hydrocarbons together with an oxygen atom. Each oxygen atom has two bonds. Draw dimethyl ether.
17 Alkenes. To make an alkene, just stick an extra carbon atom onto a hydrocarbon. This carbon atom is double bonded to the hydrocarbon and it has two hydrogens on it. Draw ethyl ketone.
