2017 MJC H2 Chemistry Prelim P3 Suggested Answers ©MJC Prelim 2017 H2 Chemistry (ii) diazonium salt phenylamine derivative Electrophile is the diazonium salt (d) Reaction Deduction Q and R can rotate plane– polarized light. Q and R contains chiral carbon and has no plane of symmetry. 0.1 mol of compound Q produces 0.5 mol of carbon dioxide gas and 0.5 mol of water. Q contains 5 C atoms and 10 H atoms. 2 mol of Q undergoes acid– base reaction reaction with 1 mol of Na 2 CO 3 Q contains 1 carboxylic acid functional group. R undergoes oxidation when heated in an alkaline solution of iodine to give a yellow precipitate. Yellow precipitate is CH I 3 . R contains structure (and ) R undergoes nucleophilic substitution when heated with sodium hydroxide, followed by the addition of dilute and aqueous silver nitrate, a cream precipitate was formed. R contains a bromoalkane / halogenoalkane functional group. Cream precipitate is AgBr. Q and R undergo nucleophilic acyl substitution to form P. P contains an ester functional group
