An Organic Compound a with the Molecular Formula C7h8 on Oxidation by Chromyl Chloride in the Presence of Ccl4 Gives a Compound B Which Gives Positive Tollen’S Test. the Compound B on Treatment - Chemistry (Theory)

Answer in Brief

An organic compound A with the molecular formula C7H8 on oxidation by chromyl chloride in the presence of CCl4 gives a compound B which gives positive tollen’s test. The compound B on treatment with NaOH followed by acid hydrolysis gives two products C and D. C on oxidation gives B which on further oxidation gives D. The compound D on distillation with soda-lime gives a hydrocarbon E. Below 60°C, concentrated nitric acid reacts with E in the presence of concentrated sulphuric acid forming a compound F. Identify the compounds A, B, C, D, E, and F.
