Olefins also called as alkene are compound made up of hydrogen and carbon that contains one or more pars of carbon atoms linked by a double bond. The simplest olefin compound has a carbon double bond and four hydrogen single bonds. Olefins belongs to a family an organic compounds called hydrocarbons. Olefins are insoluble and exist in all three states of matter. Some short chain alkenes are gases at room temperature and pressure. More complicated structures exist as liquids and solids. Olefins are examples of unsaturated hydrocarbons, compounds that contain only hydrogen and carbon and at least one double or triple bond.
