Ethane, with the molecular formula C2H6 has
Ethane with molecular formula C2H6 has seven covalent bonds. 6 bonds between C-H and one is between C-C.
Butanone is a four-carbon compound with the functional group
While cooking, if the bottom of the vessel is getting blackened on the outside, it means that
A covalent bond is formed by
A covalent bond is formed by mutual sharing of electrons between the 2 atoms.
Which family of organic compounds does not contain any multiple bonds?
Alkyl halides are polar in nature, but they are almost insoluble in water. They can neither form Hydrogen bond nor they can break hydrogen bond between water molecules.
Which of the following is not a saturated hydrocarbon?
Benzene is C6H6 an aromatic compound in the form of a closed ring. It contains alternate double and single bond.
Benzene with molecular formula, C6H6, has
In benzene each carbon is bonded with other carbon and hydrogen. So, for each carbon there will be two sigma bonds, one with other carbon and another one is with hydrogen. So, now we can calculate the single bonds => 6*2= 12
And when we come to the no. of pi bonds in each carbon in Benzene there will be one hybridized orbital that will overlap with other carbon axially to form pi bonds. There will be 6 carbons in benzene, so=> 6/2=3
Hence, we can say there are 3 double bonds in benzene.
The functional group in methanol and methanal respectively are :
Methane + ol = Methanol
Methane + al = Methanal
In graphite carbon atoms are arranged in layers of
Graphite is composed of layers of carbon atoms that are arranged in 6 - membered hexagonal rings. These rings are attached to one another on their edges. Layers of fused rings can be modeled as an infinite series of fused benzene rings.
Graphite is a soft lubricant extremely difficult to melt. The reason for this anomalous behaviour is that graphite.
Graphite has a hexagonal sheet structure in which every carbon atom is bonded to 3 other carbon atoms and the adjacent layers are arranged together by weak van der waal forces of attraction.
The gap between the adjacent layers makes it soft and slippery.
Which of the following represent the correct order of unsaturation?
Alkenes contain C-C double bond whereas alkynes contain C-C triple bond.
The general formula of alcohol is
The general formula of monohydric alcohols is CnH2n+1OH where n = 1, 2, 3… etc.. or R-OH where R is any alkyl group.
Alcohols are formed by replacement of 1 hydrogen atom from hydrocarbons.
Ethanol is used as the important ingredient in manufacturing of wine, beer and other brewerie products.
The acid present in vinegar is
Vinegar is an aqueous solution of acetic acid. Vinegar typically contains 5–8% acetic acid by volume.
The reaction 2C2H5OH + 2Na → 2C2H5ONa + H2 suggests that ethanol is
Ethanol is neutral in nature as it shows no effect on litmus paper.
Which of the following substance is added to denature ethanol?
Ethanol + methanol leads in formation of denatured alcohol. Methanol is added to make industrial alcohol unfit for drinking.
Which of the following substances cannot be used to distinguish ethanol from ethanoic acid?
Option ( a) Na metal is the correct answer because other options ( b) ,( c) and ( d) are used to distinguish ethanol from ethanoic acid.
An example of soap is
C17H35COOC2H5 + NaOH → C17H35COONa + C2H5OH
Detergents are sodium and potassium salts of long chain
Detergents are sodium and potassium salts of Sulphonic acids. Thus detergents gave Sulphonic group instead of Carboxylic group. The detergents don't form precipitate with these metal ions.
Which of the following salts when dissolved in water produce hard water?
When either calcium sulphate or magnesium bicarbonate or calcium chloride is dissolved in water, hard water is obtained. Hard water is due to presence of sulphates, chlorides or bicarbonates of magnesium and calcium in water.
The functional group in aldehydes is
Ethanol on complete oxidation gives
Ethanol is firstly oxidized to acetaldehyde and the acetaldehyde is then oxidized to acetic acid. This reaction is considered as a green catalytic process for the only reduction product is water.
Which class of organic compounds give effervescence with NaHCO3 solution ?
Carboxylic acids are obtained from alcohols by -
Soaps are prepared by alkaline hydrolysis of -
Soaps are sodium or potassium salts of long chain fatty acids. When triglycerides in fat / oil react with aqueous NaOH or KOH, they are converted into soap and glycerol. This is called alkaline hydrolysis of esters. Since this reaction leads to the formation of soap, it is called the saponification process.
