UncategorizedAn organic liquid ‘A’ with acidified potassium dichromate gave product ‘B’. The compound ‘B’ on heating with methanol in presence of concentrated sulphuric acid formed compound ‘C’ which on subsequent treatment with sodium hydroxide formed two products ‘D’ and ‘E’. The product ‘D’ is known to affect the optic nerve causing blindness. Intake of ‘D’ in very small quantities can cause deathWhat are compounds ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’, ‘D’, and ‘E’?

What are compounds ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’, ‘D’, and ‘E’?

  1. A
    A = Ethanol, B = Ethanoic and, C = Methanol, D = Sodium acetate, E = Methyl ethanoate
  2. B
    A = Ethanol, B = Ethanoic and, C = Methyl ethanoate, D = Methanol, E = Sodium acetate
  3. C
    A = Sodium acetate, B = Ethanoic acid, C = Methyl ethanoate, D = Methanol, E = Ethanol
  4. D
    A = Ethanol, B = Ethanoicancid, C = Methyl ethanoate, D = Sodium acetate, E = Methanol

    Solution:

    Ethyl alcohol on oxidation gives ethanoic acid and when it is allowed to react with methanol it forms an ester methyl ethanoate
