Whether an aromatic compound can be a saturated compound or not should be determined. Concept Introduction: Saturated hydrocarbon: Those hydrocarbons which contain only single covalent bond, include alkanes. The amount of hydrogen is high compared to the amount of carbon. They are less reactive and are obtained from fossil animal and plant material. Unsaturated hydrocarbon: Those hydrocarbons which contain multiple covalent bond, include alkenes, alkynes, and aromatic. The amount of carbon is high compared to the amount of hydrogen. They are more reactive and are obtained from plant material.
