Test and +ve resultInference(s)No. (level)
Warm with acidified potassium dichromate(VI). Orange solution turns green3 (being specific here) (AS)
Shake with 2,4−dinitrophenylhydrazine solution. Orange precipitate formed.2 (A2)
Shake with bromine water. Yellow solution is decolorised and white precipitate also formed.1 (A2)
Sodium nitrite and dilute hydrochloric acid followed by an alkaline solution of phenol in ice-cold conditions. Orange precipitate formed1 (A2)
Boil with Fehling’s or Benedict’s solution. Blue solution gives red precipitate.1 (AS)
Iodine in alkaline solution. Pale yellow precipitate formed.1 (A2)
Shake with bromine water. Yellow solution is decolorised1 (AS)
Test and +ve resultInference(s)No. (level)
Warm with ammoniacal silver nitrate (Tollens’ reagent). Silver mirror forms on glassware or grey-black precipitate forms.1 (AS)
Add a small piece of sodium. Effervescence (bubbles), sodium dissolves, white solid formed.3 (2xAS + 1xA2)
Warm with carboxylic acid and a few drops of concentrated sulfuric acid. Ester smell, eg glue-like.1 (A2)
Warm with aqueous sodium/potassium hydroxide, acidify with dilute nitric acid then add aqueous silver nitrate. 3 possible precipitates: White, Cream, Yellow.3 (Ans: C-[1], C-[2], C-[3] in order given) (AS)
Add sodium or potassium carbonate or hydrogencarbonate solution. Effervescence.1 (AS)
