Why phenol is more acidic than ethanol.
Account for the acidic character of phenol
Nitration of phenol give ortho or para products only. Give reason.
How is ethanol prepared by hydration & how will it be distinguished from ethanol.
An organic compound (A) C3H8O give positive iodoform test, on treatment with excess of conc. Sulphuric acid gives a compound (B) which on treatment with HBr give (C). (C) when dissolved in ether & treated with sodium gives (D). Identify (A) to (D) with proper reasoning.
Write short notes on:
a. Alcoholic fermentation
b. Coupling reaction
Give reason for the following statements:
a. 2-butene is the major product when 2 – butanol is heated with conc. Sulphuric acid.
b. Boiling point of glycerol is much higher than that of n-butyric acid having comparable molecular mass.
c. Glycerol is much more viscous than ethyl alcohol.
d. Cyclohexanol gives bromocyclohexane, when refluxed with HBr whereas phenol does not.
e. Picric acid is a stronger acid than phenol.
