There are two compounds with the formula {eq}C_{3}H_{6} {/eq}, one of which does not have a multiple bond. Draw its structure and explain why it is much less stable than the isomer with the double bond.


Isomers are compounds that have the same chemical formula but have different arrangements of the atoms making up the compound. if the difference in the arrangement of the atoms is the bond connectivities of the atoms, the compounds are specifically referred to as structural isomers. Structural isomers of organic compounds that give rise to different functional groups are called functional isomers.
