· Replace the last `e' · Replace the the last `e' with
of a alkyl chain with the number the carbonyl is
al. on, then one.

But-2-ene Butenal Hex-2-ene Hex-2-en-4-one…read more
Smaller Aldehydes and Ketones are soluble in water
because the lone electron pairs on the oxygen in the
carbonyl group form hydrogen bonds with the hydrogen
in the water molecules. As the chain length increases,
they become less soluble because the hydrocarbon `tail'
gets in the way.
· The longer the molecule the higher the boiling point
because there is a larger surface area and stronger
intermolecular forces between molecules.…read more
Primary Alcohol + Oxidising Agent Aldehyde + Water
CH3CH2CH2CH2OH + [O] CH3CH2CH2CHO + H2O
(Usually Potassium (Distilled off immediately
Dichromate) so not oxidised further)
Secondary Alcohol + Oxidising Agent Ketone + Water
CH3CH2CH(OH)CH3 + [O] CH3CH2COCH3 + H2O…read more
