Alkyl groups are functional groups formally derived from alkanes by replacement of one hydrogen atom with other atoms or groups of atoms. Alkyl groups have the general formula CnH2n+1. Alkyl groups are found in alkyl compounds, which have the general formula CnH2n+1X, where X is any chemical element or group.
