Acetylene (seestematic name: ethyne) is the chemical compoond wi the formula C2H2. It is a hydrocarbon an the simplest alkyne.[2] This colourless gas is widely uised as a fuel an a chemical biggin block. It is unstable in pure furm an thus is uisually haundled as a solution.[3] Pure acetylene is odorless, but commercial grades uisually hae a marked odor due tae impurities.[4]

As an alkyne, acetylene is unsaturatit acause its twa carbon atoms are bondit thegither in a triple bond. The carbon–carbon triple bond places aw fower atoms in the same straicht line, wi CCH bond angles of 180°. Syne acetylene is a linear symmetrical molecule, it possesses the D∞h pynt group.[5]
