On one extreme is the zig-zag extended chain and on the other is a coil. Such spatial structures become particularly important in determining properties of very long chained compounds known as polymers (Chapter 5). fm Page 44 Friday, November 30, 2001 10:11 AM 44 Chemistry and the Chemical Industry ISOMERS Compounds with the same formula but with different structures are called isomers. H3C CH3 CH2 CH2 CH3 CH CH3 H3C C4H10 normal butane (n-butane) C4H10 isobutane (i-butane) The paraffin hydrocarbon containing four carbon atoms is called butane, but two 4-carbon (C4) paraffins are possible.

Thus, oxidation and reduction can be considered to be opposite chemical processes. ” “Hydrated” lime is calcium hydroxide (Ca(OH)2). Properties White to grayish-white solid. Reacts with water to form calcium hydroxide. Commercial grades Commercial lime is available in lump, pebble, ground, and pulverized forms. Uses One of the oldest commercial chemicals. Used in hundreds of applications. The most important uses are for making steel and chemicals, water treatment, pollution control, pulp and paper, and construction.

So, it can share its one electron with carbon and carbon can share one of its electrons with hydrogen. Thus, four hydrogen atoms, each with one electron, can satisfy the four electrons needed by carbon. The result is a stable simple organic compound known as methane. The sharing of electrons between carbon and hydrogen is an example of atom to-atom bonding known as covalency and the two-electron bond is called a covalent bond. fm Page 39 Friday, November 30, 2001 10:11 AM Organic Chemistry 39 CARBON CHAINS Carbon atoms bond to each other to form chains, a process known as catenation.
