After attending my most recent Organic Chemistry lab titled "Reactions of aldehydes and Ketones" I am left with two unknowns (about 2 mL liquid each) that I have removed from the class because I was not able to correctly identify them. The Laboratory involved testing some common aldehyde and ketons such as Acetone, Cyclohexanone, Benzaldehyde, Toluene, and two unknowns. with reagents such as: Chromic Acid, Tollens reagent, Schiffs Reagent, Iodoform and 2,4-Dinitrophenylhydrazine. After completing all the reactions The two unknowns looked as if the mirrored Acetone AND Cyclohexanone. Due to time constraints I was unable to due further testing.. As stated above I now have a few mL's of the two unknows at home... Can anyhow tell me if there is any way to properly differentiate between these two compounds from my home??
Thanks in advance!!!
