Dear Rushab Kasat,

Yes ofcourse !! 

Cyclohexane Shows Functional Isomerism ..

 Cyclohexane and 1-hexene  both have the formula C6H12. These two are considered functional group isomers because cyclohexane is a cycloalkane and hex-1-ene is an alkene.

Example of functional group isomerism
Cyclohexane-2D-skeletal.svg 1-hexene.svg
Cyclohexane 1-hexene

For two molecules to be functional isomers, they must contain key groups of atoms arranged in particular ways. Some of the best examples come from organic chemistry. C2H6O is a molecular formula. Depending on how the atoms are arranged, it can represent two different compounds dimethyl ether CH3-O-CH3 or ethanol CH3CH2-O-H. Dimethyl ether and ethanol are functional isomers. The first is an ether. The carbon chain-oxygen-carbon chain functionality is called an ether. The second is an alcohol. The carbon chain-oxygen-hydrogen functionality is called an alcohol.

 

Hope this helped you immensely...

All the Very Best & Good Luck to you ...
