Alkane Carbon Rings

I'll make this short and sweet.

We've seen carbons that are in chains, true? Now, think about the carbons going in a circle or a ring. Hmm...

Take for example,

Cycloctane

Cycloctane

.

It has eight carbons forming a ring, plus they are all single bonds (and nothing other than carbons or hydrogens) \(\Rightarrow\) octane.

However, it is forming a ring, therefore we name this... a cyclo octane.

Of course, this was a basic example... But it's quite easy to understand.

So yes, you could extend this knowledge and I suppose... make your own structures. Oooh. Comment some below. ^^

The correct name for 2 is cyclopenta-1,3-diene. The correct name for 3 is 1-cyclobutyl-2-methylethylcyclobutane.

I really didn't get what to comment on.Every one knows you can create as many hydrocarbons as possible! In fact, there are much much much more possible isomeric structures in which hydrocarbons can exists than there are actual particles in this universe!

Yes, that's true. I thought it'd be nice to see people get creative or something. Like adding complex groups or so. Hahaha. ^^
