Question on Structural Identification
Two compounds A and B, have the same molecular formula C6H10. Both the compounds decolourise Br2 in CCl4. Compound A gives a precipitate when treated with silver nitrate in ammonia, while B does not. A gives n-hexane when treated with excess of H2/Pd. When treated with excess of H2/Pd, B gives a product with formula C6H12. When A is oxidised with hot alkaline KMnO4 and the resulting solution acidified, the only organic product that can be isolated is n-pentanoic acid. Similar oxidation of B gives only adipic acid. What are the names of A and B?
