In which of the following compounds is the functional group?

A homologous series is a series of compounds in which each member differs from the next/previous by CH2 or 14 mass units. Physical properties change in a homologous series but chemical properties remain almost the same because the functional group does not change./span>

The alkanes are a homologous series of hydrocarbons . This means that they have similar chemical properties to each other and they have trends in physical properties. The general formula means that the number of hydrogen atoms in an alkane is double the number of carbon atoms, plus two. …

Q. What are the three general features of a homologous series?

Characteristics are :

  • The members of the homologous series have same functional group.
  • Members have the same general formula.
  • Members have the almost same chemical properties due to same functional group.
  • Members have common general method of preparation.
