Unsaturated carbon compounds do not burn completely and give a flame with unburnt or partially burnt carbon particles. Such a flame has yellow color and is polluting. Its is called sooty flame.

While saturated carbon compounds usually burn completely and give a clear blue flame. This is called non sooty flame.
