Crude oil is a mixture of a very large number of different hydrocarbons including alkanes (paraffin), cycloalkanes (naphthenes), aromatic hydrocarbons, or more complicated chemicals like asphaltenes and sulfur. Each crude oil variety has a unique mix of hydrocarbons, which define its physical and chemical properties, like color and viscosity.
