H2O + NH3 → OH- + NH4+
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)
Shake with bromine water. Yellow solution is decolorised and white precipitate also formed.1 (A2)
Boil with Fehling’s or Benedict’s solution. Blue solution gives red precipitate.1 (AS)
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)
Sodium nitrite and dilute hydrochloric acid followed by an alkaline solution of phenol in ice-cold conditions. Orange precipitate formed1 (A2)
Shake with 2,4−dinitrophenylhydrazine solution. Orange precipitate formed.2 (A2)
Test and +ve resultInference(s)No. (level)
Warm with acidified potassium dichromate(VI). Orange solution turns green3 (being specific here) (AS)
Add phosphorus(V) chloride. Steamy fumes given off that turn damp blue litmus paper red.2 (AS)
Add sodium or potassium carbonate or hydrogencarbonate solution. Effervescence.1 (AS)
Shake with bromine water. Yellow solution is decolorised1 (AS)
Iodine in alkaline solution. Pale yellow precipitate formed.1 (A2)
Warm with carboxylic acid and a few drops of concentrated sulfuric acid. Ester smell, eg glue-like.1 (A2)
