Definition of the noun Octene

What does Octene mean as a name of something?

noun

  1. [organic compound] Any of many isomeric alkenes having eight carbon atoms and one double bond; some of them are used in the manufacture of polymers

Explanation

Octene is an alkene with the formula C8H16. Several isomers of octene are known, depending on the position of the double bond and the branching of the carbon chain. The simplest isomers is 1-octene, an alpha-olefin used primarily as a co-monomer in production of polyethylene via the solution polymerization process. Several useful octenes are obtained by dimerization of isobutene and 1-butene. These branched alkenes are used to alkylate phenols to give precursors to detergents.
