    Hi there,

    My Spanish version of that piece of text is:

    1) estructura física

    2) Los tipos de parafina están compuestos de moléculas en las que la cantidad de átomos de hidrógeno es siempre el doble que el doble de los átomos de carbono.

    3) petróleo nafténico

    4) (the sentence in the source does not make sense but this is what I try to interprete..) ...compuesto por el doble de la cantidad de átomos de hidrógeno tanto como de la cantidad de átomos de carbono.
