The term octane applies to petrol. What does this suggest about petrol? OIL AND HYDROCARBONS Alkanes Alkanes are hydrocarbons with a general formula CnH2n+2. • Hydrocarbons are compounds of hydrogen (H) and carbon (C) only. • Each carbon atom forms four bonds and each hydrogen atom forms one bond. • This gives rise to a simple formula, CH4, which is that of methane. Methane CH4 H H C H Methane is the hydrocarbon with the simplest formula. It is a colourless, flammable gas. It is the gas which is supplied to homes for cooking and heating.

Loses e– atom X cation X+ X+ Y– atom Y Each ion attracts ions of opposite charge from all directions, giving a ‘giant structure’ of ions. anion Y– gains e– This is what happens when sodium reacts with chlorine. The sodium atoms give their outer electrons to the chlorine atoms. In this way both types of atom attain a stable outer arrangement of electrons. Na Cl sodium Na chlorine + – The structure of sodium chloride is shown on page 35. Cl sodium chloride Lithium bonds to fluorine in a similar way.
