(15 pts)
Compound ID Information Name or structure
A Reacts with oxidizing agents; reacts immediately with bromine;
negative Iodoform Test; negative Lucas Test.  
B Negative result with oxidizing agents; reacts with bromine only with
uv-light; negative Iodoform test; as previously mentioned, has
relatively low boiling point.  
C Reacts with oxidizing agents; reacts immediately with bromine; gives a
positive result to Lucas Test after 8 minutes; shows yellow precipitate
result in Iodoform Test  
D No reaction with oxidizers; reacts with bromine only when uv-light is
present; has positive Iodoform test.
