Decene is an alkene with the formula C10H20. Decene contains a chain of ten carbon atoms with one double bond. 1-Decene enters all reactions that are typical of 1-decenes. It can be used as a co-monomer in certain copolymers and as an intermediate to produce epoxides, amines, oxo alcohols, synthetic lubricants, synthetic fatty acids, and alkylated aromatics.
