Prelab for Experiment 3 1. A has Alcohol functional group. B has Aldehyde functional group C has Carboxylic acid functional group D has Amine functional group 2. For A, the Oxidation with Benedict’s solution will identify the Alcohol functional group. The test should yield a negative result. For B, the Oxidation with Benedict’s solution will identify the Aldehyde functional group. The test should yield a positive result. For C, both the pH of the solution test and the solubility in 1M NaOH will identify the

Unformatted text preview: Carboxylic acid functional group. The pH test should show that the solution in acidic. It should also test soluble in 1M NaOH. For D, both the pH of the solution test and the solubility in 1M HCl will identify the Amine functional group. The pH test should show that the solution in basic. It should also test soluble in 1M HCl....
