It has been demonstrated experimentally that methyl cyclo-pentane can form gas hydrates. The first hydrate equilibrium data on the newly discovered hydrate structure have been determined over the seabed temperature range (274-288 K). In addition to methane, nitrogen for the first time has been used as help gas to fill small cavities of the above structure. The new structure is more stable than those formed by the light gases, and hence reduces their hydrate free zones.
