Meaning of the Brand

 

Octane is a hydrocarbon and an alkane with the chemical formula C8H18, and the condensed structural formula CH3(CH2)6CH3.

It has many structural isomers that differ by the amount and location of branching in the carbon chain.

One of these isomers, 2,2,4-trimethylpentane (isooctane) is used as one of the standard values in the octane rating scale.

As with all low-molecular weight hydrocarbons, octane and its isomers are very flammable and are components of gasoline (petrol).

 

Use of the term in gasoline:

"Octane" is colloquially used as a short form of "octane rating" (named for the ability of octane's branched-chain isomers, especially isooctane, to reduce engine knock),

particularly in the expression "high octane."

However, components of gasoline other than isomers of octane can also contribute to a high octane rating, while some isomers of octane can lower it,

and n-octane itself has a negative octane rating. 

Octane's boiling point: 125.1 to 126.1°c
