1. Unsaturation : Alkenes & alkynes :

(a) Bayer's test : Cold dil alk. KMnO4 decolourisation test

       Purple colour to Colourless MnO2 (Brown ppt).

      Violet colour of Br2 → Colourless

2. Terminal alkynes :

Confirmed by ppt. of Acetylide ion with NaNH2 or AgNO2 or Cu2Cl2NH4OH.

3. Alkyl halides :

(a) If they are capable of carbocation formation then they will give ppt with AgNO3.

(b) Beilstein's test : A green colour is imported to the flame if small amount of organic compound is taken on copper wire.

4. Alcohol :

(a) Cerric ammonium nitrate → Give red colour

(b) Boil with acetic acid & conc. H2SO→ fruity smell

(c) 2-alkanol & ethanol also give Iodoform test → Yellow ppt. of CH3I on reaction with I2  -OH

5. Aldehyde & ketones :

2,4-Dinitrophenyl hydrazize (or) Braddy's reagent give yellow, orange or red colour with ald. & Ketones (2, 4-DNP).

6. Aldehydes :

(a) Tollen's test   Silver mirror

(b) Fehling's test {except benzaldehyde} → Red colour

(c) Benedict's test →  Red colour

(d) Schiff's dye colour regeneration test →  Pink colour

(e) Gly ppt. with HgCl2.

7. Ketones :

(a) methyl ketones give haloform test

(b) a-hydroxy Ketones give Tollen's & Fehling test's too.

8. Carboxylic acids :

(a) Brisk effervescence with aq. NaHCO3 solution.

(b) HCOOH alone gives silver mirror test with Tollen's reagent.

(c) Blue litmus →  red

(d) give fruity smell of reaction with alcohols.

9. Phenols :

(a) Violet colouration with neural FeCl3

(b) Liebermann test

(c) White ppt. with Br2 water

(d) Brisk effervescence with aq. NaHCO3 is observed in case of Nitrophenols.

10. Primary amines :

(a) Carbylamine reaction →  Isonitriles have very distinctive foul odours.

(b) Hoffmann mustard oil reaction →  Oily liquid with mustard like smell.

11. Aromatic 1º amine →  diazo test

12. Amide boil with NaOH →  NH3

13. Nitrobenzene →  Mullikqn Baker test: Treat it with ZnNH4Cl then boil with Tollen's reagent →  Silver mirror will appear

14. Proteins :

(a) Biuret test : Also used for urea →  Alkaline solution of protein treated with a drop of aq CuSO4 when bluish violet colour is obtained.

(b) Ninhydrin test: Protein treated with a pyridine solution of ninhydrin give colour ranging from deep blue to violet pink.


D1. 1º, 2º & 3º alcohols :

(a) Luca's test : Lucas reagent is conc. HCl ZnCl2

(b) Victor Meyer's test (RBC test)

(i) 1º Alcohol →  Blood red colour

(ii) 2º Alcohol →  Blue

(iii) 3º Alcohol →  Colourless

D2. 1º, 2º & 3º amines :

(a) Hinsberg's reagent:

(i) 1º Amine yield a clear solution from which upon acidification an insoluble material separated.

(ii) 2º Amine yield an insoluble compound which is unaffected by acid.

(iii) 3º Amine yield insoluble compound.

(b) Reaction with HNO2.
