Solution - How Are 1 - Nitropropane, 2-nitropropane and 2-methyl 2- Nitropropane Are Distinguished from Each Other Using Nitrous Acid? - HSC Science (Computer Science) 12th Board Exam - Chemistry

Question

How are 1 - nitropropane, 2-nitropropane and 2-methyl 2- nitropropane are distinguished from each other using nitrous acid?

Solution

1-Nitropropane reacts with nitrous acid to form blue-coloured nitrosonitroalkanes which dissolve in NaOH to give red solution.

 

2-Nitropropane reacts with nitrous acid to form blue-coloured nitrosonitroalkanes which are further insoluble in NaOH because of the absence of the alpha hydrogen atom.

2-Methyl2-nitropropane does not react with nitrous acid because it has no alpha-hydrogen atom.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
