A compound of carbon and hydrogen. The Hydrocarbon's constitute a number of homologous series, each member of each series being formed from the preceding member by the addition of the common difference CH2. Consequently, in each series, the relation between the number of hydrogen and the number of carbon atoms in each member is the same; and this relation may accordingly be expressed by a general formula which will represent every member of that particular series. There are several classes of Hydrocarbon's, namely, the saturated (paraffins, fatty Hydrocarbon's), the unsaturated, the polymethylene, and the aromatic.
