Cyclyoalkanes , and Alkadienes Cycloalkanes (also called naphthenes - not to be confused with ) are types of that have one or more rings ofcarbon atoms in the chemical structure of their molecules.Cycloalkanes are cyclic saturated having general formula CnH2n Cycloalkanes with a single ring are named analogously to their normal counterpart of the same count: , , , , etc. The larger cycloalkanes, with greater than 20 carbon atoms are typically called cycloparaffins. Cycloalkanes are classified into small, common, medium, and large cycloalkanes, where cyclopropane and cyclobutane are the small ones, cyclopentane, cyclohexane, are the common ones, through are the medium ones, and the rest are the larger ones.

Methods of preparations

1) From Carbene

Carbenes are highly reactive carbon species and they add to to form cyclopropane derivaties. Carbene being highly reactive intermediate it cannot be isolated, hence reaction is carried out by reacting alkene wih compounds generating carbene.
