How I can distinguish one substance from the other.
a) Phenol (benzenol) from Toluene (methylbenzene )
b) Phenol from Benzoic acid
c) Glucose from pentan-3-one [C2
d) propanone from pentanal [ C2
e) but-1-ene from but-1-yne
f) pentan-2-one from pentan-3-one
g) phenylyethene from phenylyethane.
I haven't got any ideas....
In a) it could be reaction with,for examle chlorine, because i think phenol react with chlorine without catalyst in contrast to toluene.
In b) it may be sth like that: "When we obtain the phenol solution in a high temperature, It will be dim (i mean-cloudy, dull etc. i think you will understand
) when we cool down that solution.
in d) i think the answer is: "Tollens' reagent"
in e) it migh be a quantity of chlorine, brom or KMnO4 used in reaction with alkene /alkyne
and in g the same as in e.
So, am i right? What about c and f ? .
