Hydrocarbons, Freezing Expansion
Date: January 2009
Are there any hydrocarbons that expand upon freezing?
This is really too broad a question for a simple example. A hydrocarbon is any
compound that consists solely of carbon and hydrogen. There are literally
millions (at least) of such compounds. The question has to be phrased in a
more defined way before it is possible to even begin to address an answer.
