Ethanol 2-Propanol
When treated with Lucas reagent (anhy. ZnCl2 and cone. HCl), ethanol gives turbidity after heating. When treated with Lucas reagent, 2-propanol gives turbidity within five minutes without heating.


(ii) Aniline and ethylamine can be distinguished using the azo-dye test.

Aniline Ethylamine
Aniline is treated with HN02 (NaNO2 + dil. HCl) at 0-5°C to give’ benzene diazonium chloride, which on further treatment with an alkaline solution of (3-naphthol gives red dye. Ethylamine gives a brisk effervescence due to evolution of N2 gas under similar conditions.
