They may be –OH, -COOH, -CO, -CHO, -Cl, -COCl, -COOR etc. The hydrogen chloride formed gives white fumes of ammonium chloride with ammonium hydroxide. Amines are derivatives of ammonia in which one or more hydrogen atoms are replaced by alkyl or aryl groups. Organic compounds contain only carbon and hydrogen are called Hydrocarbons. The reagents used in this test are Fehling’s solution A and Fehling’s solution B. Fehling’s solution A is an aqueous solution of copper sulphate and Fehling’s solution B is a clear solution of sodium potassium tartrate (Rochelle salt) and strong alkali (usually NaOH). The blue or green colour changes to red or brown colour on treatment with water. The presence of This experiment can be tailored to the readiness level of the students in the class. In some cases, these tests will be sufficient to identify the functional group(s) of your unknown substance. The disappearance of pink colour may take place with or without the formation of brown precipitate of MnO2. Functional Groups in Organic hemistry, Teacher’s Guide 2 Functional Groups in Organic Chemistry In this lab experiment, students will be performing a series of tests to determine the identity of their assigned unknown. Dissolve 0.5 mL of each alcohol in 5 mL of H 2O in separate 150-mL test tubes. This difference forms the basis of the tests for distinguishing aldehydes and ketones. Bromine Test. An Introduction to Functional Groups in Organic Molecules* OUTCOMES After completing this experiment, the student should be able to: perform functional group identification tests. Tertiary amines react with nitrous acid to form soluble nitrite salts. The compounds that are derived from hydrocarbons by replacing one or more hydrogen atoms by other atoms or groups of atoms are called derivatives of hydrocarbons or families. Classification Tests -> Refer to prelab 4 for procedures. A triple bond contains one σ (sigma) bond and two π (pi) bonds. Our objective is to identify the functional groups present in an organic compound through; Organic chemistry is the branch of chemistry that deals with the structure, properties and reactions of compounds that contain carbon. They may have straight chain, branched or ring structure. carbons can In the case of ketones there are two carbon atoms bonded to the carbonyl carbon and … In this test, the orange-red colour of bromine solution disappears when it is added to an unsaturated organic compound (unsaturated hydrocarbon). When two of the three hydrogen atoms are replaced by alkyl or aryl group, secondary anime is formed. Functional groups are responsible for the characteristics of a molecule. In Part B of the lab (Week 2), you will conduct a series of experiments to distinguish between the remaining functional group possibilities to uniquely identify the functional group on your unknown A ketone functional group was determined rather than an ester functional group due to the peak appearing below 1730 wavenumbers. Evan McNeil 11/19/19 Lab #5: Identification of Functional Groups in Unknown Compounds Using Classification Tests and IR Spectroscopy Objective: The purpose of this lab is to identify the functional groups of two unknown compounds through a combination of IR spectroscopy, solubility tests, and classification tests. The dissociation of carboxylic acid is represented as: Carboxylic acids reacts with sodium hydrogen carbonate to produce carbon dioxide gas which can be seen in the form of a brisk effervescence. Using these two we knew which classification tests from lab 4 to perform in order to. They are also called Paraffins or Aliphatic Hydrocarbons. The preliminary examination and group classification tests indicate the particular class (functional group) to which an unknown organic compound may belong. The phenolic group can be detected by the following tests: Phenol is a weak acid, it gives red colour with litmus paper. The final Fehling’s solution is obtained by mixing equal volmes of both Fehling’s solution A and Fehling’s solution B that has a deep blue colour. The red colour is due to the formation of indophenol. This preview shows page 1 - 4 out of 8 pages. The hydroxyl group in carboxylic is far more acidic than that in alcohol. write an abstract for a lab report. A. Alcohols Iodoform 1. The atom or group of atoms that replaces hydrogen atoms from hydrocarbon are called functional groups. solubility tests which could also help tell us whether the compound was acidic, basic, or neutral, and more. Alcohols react with acetyl chloride to form esters and gives out hydrogen chloride gas. Carboxylic acid reacts with alcohol in presence of conc. Carboxylic acids such as benzoic acid, oxalic acid, phthalic acid, tartaric acid etc are colourless crystalline solids. But in ketones the carbonyl carbon is attached to two aliphatic or aromatic groups. Phenols are compounds containing a hydroxyl group attached to an aromatic ring. Aromatic primary amines react with nitrous acid to form diazonium salts. Further characterisation and identification depends on the selection and preparation of a suitable solid derivative and accurate determination of its melting point (best, between 90 - 150 ). You will use only a fraction of those available: In this test, pink colour of KMnO4 disappears, when alkaline KMnO4 is added to an unsaturated hydrocarbon. Course Title: Chemistry for biologist I Course code: CHE 108 Prepared by: Md. Most aldehydes and ketones give bisulphate addition product with sodium bisulphate, which is white crystalline in nature. The atom or group of atoms that replaces hydrogen atoms from hydrocarbon are called functional groups. Note: With benzaldehyde the pink colour developes slowly. Tests for Unsaturation. Formaldehyde is an exception, in which carbonyl group is attached to two hydrogen atoms. What are functional Groups? The functional groups you will examine include amines, alcohols, carboxylic acids, alkenes, alkanes, and alkyl halides. Organic compound form the basis of earthly life and their range of application is enormous. The objects of study in organic chemistry include hydrocarbon, compounds containing carbon and hydrogen and the compositions based on carbon but containing other elements. First we took an IR spectroscopy of each compound to guide us, in what possible functional groups there could be in the compound. We also did this through. Amines are basic in nature and turns red litmus blue. Organic Compounds: Functional Group Identification WFIp2003fall Perform ALL parts with an unknown sample (if provided) and record with the known samples simultaneously . Detection and confirmation test for functional group 1. One σ (sigma) bond and one π (pi) bond constitute a double bond. 1. In this lab we had a solid unknown and a liquid unknown that we had to identify using our, knowledge of organic chemistry. It is generally represented as R3N. Aromatic Ring Aromatic compounds often burn with a sooty flame. sulphuric acid to form ester that is identified by the presence of a fruity smell. Alkynes: Aliphatic hydrocarbons that contain carbon-carbon triple bond are called alkynes. When all the three hydrogen atoms are replaced by alkyl or aryl substituents, tertiary amine is formed. Solubility and Functional Group Tests Hydrocarbons can be classified into two: Hydrocarbons that contain carbon-carbon single bonds are called saturated hydrocarbons. Secondary amines react with nitrous acid to form a yellow oily nitrosoamine. Alkenes: Aliphatic hydrocarbons that contain carbon-carbon double bond are called alkenes. Note: Acetone phenone and benzophenone do not give this test. Experiment #9 – Identification of Aldehydes and Ketones Introduction Aldehydes and ketones share the carbonyl functional group which features carbon doubly bonded to oxygen. Phenolphthalein gives pink colour on treating with alkali. When alcohol is warmed with sodium hydroxide solution and iodine, a yellow precipitate of iodoform is formed. You will then apply what you have learned by characterizing unknown organic compounds in terms of their functional group and solubility behavior. Chemists have developed a number of simple chemical tests that are positive only for compounds having certain kinds of functional groups. Phenol on heating with phthaleic anhydride in the presence of sulphuric acid produces phenolphthalein, which is colourless. Experiment 5: Identification of Functional Groups in Unknown compounds using classification tests and IR spectroscopy Objective: Through this experiment we would combine solubility, IR spectroscopy, and skills from Experiment 4 to determine the function groups present on our unknown compound. Alcohols are further classified as primary (1°), secondary (2°) and tertiary (3°) according to the –OH group is attached to the primary, secondary and tertiary carbon atoms respectively. When one of the three hydrogen atoms is replaced by alkyl or aryl group, primary amine is formed. Alcohols react with carboxylic acids to form fruity smelling compounds called esters. In this test, the orange-red colour of bromine solution disappears when it is added to an unsaturated organic compound (unsaturated hydrocarbon). This test is given by acetaldehyde, all methyl ketones and all alcohols containing CH3-CH-OH group. The anion of the keton formed by a alkali reacts with nitroprusside ion to form a red coloured complex.
