2. How would you carry out a test to distinguish a carboxylic acid from a ketone?
- Add solid carbonate - fizzing as CO2 given off = aldehyde/ketone
- Oxidise with K2Cr2O7/H2SO4 - colour change = carboxylic acid
- React with 2,4-DNPH, orange precipitate = aldehyde/ketone
- Heat gently with tollens reagent, silver mirror = carboxylic acid
