Choose the correct statement
At room temperature, alkene of higher carbon chain (>C19) are solids in nature
Alkenes of carbon chain (>C3) are odourless
Alkenes are soluble in water
The correct options are
A At room temperature, alkene of higher carbon chain (>C19) are solids in nature
B Alkenes are colourless
C Alkenes of carbon chain (>C3) are odourless
Physical properties of alkenes:
1. Physical state: (At room temperature)
2. Colour : All alkenes are colourless
3. Odour :
C2→ Faint sweet smell
Alkenes are non polar and they dissolve in non polar solvents like benzene, petrol, ether, etc.,
Alkenes are insoluble in water because water in polar solvent.
Therefore, the correct statements are (a), (b) and (c).
