Cycloalkane - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics
Robert J. Ouellette, J. David Rawn, in Organic Chemistry Study Guide, 2015. 4.5 Cycloalkanes. Cycloalkanes, as their name tells us, contain rings. Some cyclic compounds have atoms that are shared between two or more rings. These are spirocyclic, bridged-ring, and fused-ring compounds. The general formula for an alkane is C n H 2n+2. Each ring in a compound reduces the number of hydrogen atoms by 2 relative to an alkane because a ring contains an extra carbon–carbon bond and, therefore, two ...
