C2H6 is the molecular formula of ethane.
Ethane is a gaseous form of a saturated hydrocarbon. The second most common alkane is ethane, which is followed by methane. It is made up of two carbon atoms and six hydrogen atoms. Ethane’s chemical formula is C2H6.
It is made using sodium propionate in a lab setting. The most important gaseous fuel is ethane. Natural gas components of ethane and heavier hydrocarbons are quite easily separated from the gas stream and liquefied under moderate pressure.
