There are several different names for butane which includes normal butane, butyl hydride, LPG (liquified petroleum gas), UN 1011, C4H10, MAT15370, and RTECS EJ4200000. Butane is in the chemical family of hydrocarbons and aliphatic.
Butane is a colorless and flammable gas with a very unpleasant odor, is found in natural gas, light crude oil, and gases formed when heavy oil is cracked or broken down chemically to produce gasoline. Butane, either of

not truly "insoluble" in water, but just has a very low solubility in other solvents. Matter of factly, butane is highly soluble in water.
Effects on Freezing Point
Hence, the two isomers differ in certain temperatures of the freezing point. Normal butane melts at -216.9° F (-138.3° C) and isobutane melts at -229° F (-145° C).
Effects on Boiling Point
Therefore, normal butane boils at 31.1° F (-0.5° C), and isobutane boils at 13.6° F (-10.2° C).
