Full Answer

The fact that the compound contains 25 different constitutional, or structural, isomers essentially means that they possess the same molecular formula, but they have different means of connectivity. In essence, this means that the molecules that collectively make up the compound can have the same count of all of the different atoms that are accounted for, and that the atoms can be assembled in different ways.

C6h12 is also known as cyclohexane. It is a colorless, flammable liquid that naturally occurs in volcanic gasses, cigarette smoke, and petroleum crude oil. It is utilized by chemical companies in order to make several different items. Some of these items include benzene, cyclohexanone and nitrocyclohexane, and the chemicals that are collectively used to create nylon. It can also be added to lacquers, resins, paint, varnish removers and fungicides. In addition, it can be utilized as a fuel for camp stoves.

The liquid evaporates when it is exposed to air, and it dissolves when it is mixed with water. It also has been shown to evaporate from water and soil when those substances are exposed to air. It has also been determined that directly breathing large quantities of the substance during short periods of time could have adverse effects to the human nervous system.
