Cracking: Breaking up larger molecules

Cracking in petro chemistry, organic chemistry and petroleum geology is the process in which complex large hydrocarbons are broken down into lighter hydrocarbons molecules, by breaking carbon-carbon bonds. The end products from this process are strongly dependent on the temperature and catalysts present. For the commercial production of gasoline and diesel, Cracking is the most important process. Read more
