Alkenes and Alkynes are two other types of hydrocarbons. The difference between them is that alkenes contain less hydrogen, carbon-carbon, than the alkanes do. The carbon atoms are joined by double bonds to account for this difference. The alkenes structure is used to distinguish the feature of the carbon-carbon double bond. Alkynes have an even smaller size of hydrogen than the alkenes. Three pairs of electrons are shared by the carbon atoms to account for this difference. They are joined by triple bonds. The distinguishing feature of the alkyne structure is the triple bond of the carbon-carbon. Hydrocarbons with at least one double bond are what Alkenes are. .Multiple carbons-carbon bonds result when hydrogen atoms are removed from alkenes. Hydrocarbons that contain at least one carbon-carbon double bond are called alkenes and have the general formula CnH2n. The simplest alkenes (C2H4), commonly known as ethylene, has the Lewis structure. An unsaturated chemical compound containing at least one carbon-carbon bond is what is well known as in organic chemistry a alkenes, alkane, olefin, or olefine. One of the simplest acyclic alkenes, that only has one double bond and has no other functional groups, which is known as monoenes, from what is know as a homologous series of what is known as hydrocarbons with seems to be the general formula of CnH2n. compared with the corresponding alkane they have two hydrogen atoms less than the corresponding alkane.
