A carbon compound 'P' on heating with excess conc. H2SO4 forms another carbon compound 'Q' which on addition of hydrogen in the presence of nickel catalyst forms a saturated carbon compound 'R'. One molecule of 'R' on combustion forms two molecules of carbon dioxide and three molecules of water. Identify P, Q and R and write chemical equations for the reactions involved
Name the compound formed when ethanol is heated in excess of conc. sulphuric acid at 443 K. Also, write the chemical equation of the reaction stating the role of conc. sulphuric acid in it. What would happen if hydrogen is added to the product of this reaction in the presence of a catalyst such as palladium or nickel?
Write the name and structural formula of the compound obtained when ethanol is heated at 443 K with excess of conc. H2SO4. Also write chemical equation for the reaction stating the role of conc. H2SO4 in it.
How can ethanol and ethanoic acid be differentiated on the basis of their physical and chemical properties?
