The above reactions lead to following conclusions.

(i) Reaction of A with CH3COOH in presence of H2SO4 to form ester B indicates that A is an alcohol.
(ii) Reaction of C with 50% KOH followed by acidification to give alcohol A and the compound D seems to be the Cannizzaro reaction. Hence C must be an aldehyde and D must be an acid. The nature of C as aldehyde is again in consistent with the fact that it is obtained by the mild oxidation of A which has been established as an alcohol.
(iii) Structure of acid D is established by its given facts.

Formation of HCN by the dehydration of E establishes that E is HCONH2 and hence D is HCOOH.

(iv) Thus the alcohol A produced along with HCOOH during Cannizzaro reaciton of C must be CH3OH and hence C must be HCHO.

Thus the various compounds are as below :

Let us draw some conclusions from the above set of reactions.

(i) The molecular formula C5H10 (CnH2n) for A indicates that it is an alkene having one double bond.
(ii) Since the alcohol C on oxidation gives a ketone D, C must be a secondary alcohol and hence B must be a secondary bromide.
(iii) The structure of 2-methylbutane, the hydrogenated product of A, indicates that the secondary bromide must have following structure.

(iv) Thus the corresponding olefin A must have structure A which on Markownikoff addition of HBr gives the bromide B, the other possible alkene A' will not give B when HBr is addd on it according to Markownikoff rule.

Q.19. A ketone ‘A’ wh ich undergoes haloform reaction gives compound B on reduction. B on heating with sulphuric acid gives compound C, which forms monoozonide D, D on hydrolysis in presence of zinc dust gives only acetaldehyde. Identify A, B and C. Write down the reactions involved.  (1989 - 4 Marks)

Ans. Subjective Type Questions: Aldehydes, Ketones & Carboxylic Acids- 2 | JEE Advanced Notes | Study Chemistry 35 Years JEE Main & Advanced Past year Papers - JEE

Solution. The compound A, a ketone, undergoes haloform reaction.

Thus, it must contain CH3CO group.

The compound C gives mono-ozonide D, which shows that the compound C contains a double bond. Since the hydrolysis of D gives only acetaldehyde, the compound C would be an alkene having four carbon atoms,

i.e. CH3 – CH = CH – CH3 (butene-2).

The compound B is obtained by the reduction of compound A (which contains CH3CO group). Hence, the compound B would be an alcohol, which on heating with H2SO4 gives (C). Hence B and A would be

Deduce the structures of A, B, C, D and E.              (1990 - 4 Marks)

Ans.  C3H7COOC2H5, C2H5OH, C4H9OH, CH3CHO

Solution. TIPS/FORMULAE :

Subjective Type Questions: Aldehydes, Ketones & Carboxylic Acids- 2 | JEE Advanced Notes | Study Chemistry 35 Years JEE Main & Advanced Past year Papers - JEE

Molecular weight of the monobasic acid (RCOOH) indicates that the R– should be CH3– i.e., acid F should be acetic acid (CH3COOH, mol. wt. 15+45). Thus compound D must be acetaldehyde CH3CHO, and compound B which on oxidation gives CH3CHO must be ethanol, CH3CH2OH.
Acetaldehyde (D) on treating with aqueous alkali will undergo aldol condensation.

Nature of A. Thus it is evident that reduction of A with LiAlH4 gives two alcohols; B (ethanol) and C (butanol). Hence A must be an ester i.e., ethyl butanoate (CH3CH2CH2COOC2H5).

Solution. Empirical formula of A and B.

Subjective Type Questions: Aldehydes, Ketones & Carboxylic Acids- 2 | JEE Advanced Notes | Study Chemistry 35 Years JEE Main & Advanced Past year Papers - JEE

∴ Empirical formula of A and B = C7H8O
Nature of (A) : Since A is insoluble in NaOH and NaHCO3, it can’t have –OH and –COOH groups. Further the reaction of A with conc. HI to give compounds C and D separable by means of ammonical AgNO3 and solubility of D in NaOH indicates that C and D are alkyl halide and phenol respectively. Thus A is an ether i.e. it is C6H5.O.CH3 which explains all the given reactions.

Subjective Type Questions: Aldehydes, Ketones & Carboxylic Acids- 2 | JEE Advanced Notes | Study Chemistry 35 Years JEE Main & Advanced Past year Papers - JEE

Nature of (B) : Solubility of B (C7H8O) in NaOH indicates that it is a phenol which is further confirmed by its reaction with bromine water to give compound E of molecular formula, C7H5OBr3. Further bromination of B to give tribromo product indicates that it is m-cresol.
