Chemical properties of the Alkanes

Chemical properties of the Alkanes 1) They combust in oxygen to form carbon dioxide, water and heat. It is this heat which makes them good fuel sources. e.g. C2H6 (g) + 7/2 O2(g)  → 2CO2(g) + 3H20(g) + heat C8H20(g) + 13 O2(g) →   8CO2 (g) + 10H2O(g) + heat 2) They undergo substitution…
