how many isomers are for C6H14 and what are they?

Asked by Aris Don(student) , on 26/2/11

Answers

There are 5 structural isomers of C6H14. The structural names are:

hexane, 2-methylpentane, 3-methylpentane, 2-ethylbutane, 2,3-dimethylbutane.

2-ethylbutane is really 3-methylpentane as the longest chain is 5 carbons.
Rather another isomer would be 2,2-dimethylbutane
