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

3. What are the reaction conditions and reagents for esterification using acid anhydrides?

  • concentrated HCl and tin
  • RTP
  • concentrated H2SO4, heat under reflux
  • concentrated HCl, heat gently

4. What conditions and reagents would you use for transesterification?

  • methanol and KOH catalyst
  • methanol and NaOH catalyst
  • conc HCl and reflux
  • conc NaBH4 and reflux

5. What are the reaction conditions and reagents for the mononitration of benzene?

  • HCl catalyst, HNO3 reagent, reflux
  • H2SO4 catalyst, HNO3 reagent, temp 50 degrees
  • H2SO4 catalyst, HNO3 reagent, reflux
  • HCl catalyst, HNO2 reagent, temp 50 degrees
