What is ment by homologous series


#1

A homologous series may be defind as a family of organic compound having the same functional group similar chemical properties and adjacent member of which differ by a 14 mass unit


#2

Homologous Series is a group of organic chemical compounds, usually listed in order of increasing size, that have a similar structure and hence also similar properties and whose structures differ only by the number of CH2 units in the main carbon chain.


#3

Instead of writing 14 mass unit it is better to write CH2Uploading…


#4

A series of organic compounds in which successive compounds I differ by CH2 group or 14 u mass.


#5

All are right for homologous series.


#6

organic compound having the same functional group similar chemical properties and adjacent member of which differ by a 14 mass unit


#7

How much it differs by molecular mass?


#8

Why is it so…??
