Question on Qualitative Analysis
Can Tollen’s Reagent be used to distinguish between methanoic and ethanoic acids?
An organic compound of molecular formula C5H10O forms a phenyl hydrazone and gives negative Tollen’s & Iodoform Tests and gives n-pentane on reduction. What is the functional group present in the organic compound?
If 3 steps are used to convert aniline to benzyl amine, what are they?
The steps are
(1) diazotization reaction that converts aniline to benzene diazonium ion
(2) conversion of benzene diazonium ion to cyano benzene by reacting it with KCN or CuCN
(3) reduction of cyano benzene into benzyl amine using LiAlH4
