Background Background Classification Tests are qualitative tests which can indicate the presence of a particular functional group, such as an aldehyde or an alcohol. ¾ Two inviolable rules when performing classification tests: 1. Perform the test exactly as described. 2. Always perform tests on known compounds, one that will result in a positive test ( known positive ) and one that will result in a negative test ( known negative ) and then perform the tests on the unknown compound .
