Branched Alkyl Groups from the Higher Alkanes Beginning with C 3 , more than one type of H is present. Different alkyl groups are formed depending on which H is removed. CH 3 C H 2 CH 3 propane C C C H H H H H H H H two equivalent H six equivalent H CH 3 CH 2 CH 2 - CH 3 CHCH 3 or CH 3 CH- CH 3 propyl isopropyl or 1-methylethyl
