Primary alcohol molecules can be oxidised into aldehydes and carboxylic acids while secondary alcohols are oxidised to ketones. Antioxidants are added to food to prevent them spoiling.
Which of the following could represent an alcohol molecule?
What is the name of this molecule?
What type of alcohol does this structure represent?
Which of these alcohol molecules will have the highest boiling point?
Why do diols have a higher boiling point than alcohols?
More hydrogen bonding
They are less viscous
They contain no double bonds
Which molecule could not be formed by oxidising propan-1-ol?
What is formed when a long chain carboxylic acid is neutralised by an alkali?
Salt and hydrogen gas
Soap and water
Salt, water and carbon dioxide gas
What type of molecules are antioxidants that can be added to our food to prevent the chemical in it from oxidising?
Which of these equations shows an antioxidant working?
Which compound would not react with Tollen’s reagent?
