What happens when acetone reacts with iodine and base?
Hereof, what happens when acetone is heated with alkaline solution of iodine?
(a) On heating acetone with alkaline solution of Iodine, iodoform is obtained. (b) When chlorobenzene is heated in presence of conc. (c) When chlorobenzene is heated with sodium metal in presence of ether, diphenyl is produced.
Also, what reacts with alkaline aqueous iodine? In the first mixture, the iodine reacts with the sodium hydroxide solution to produce some sodium iodate(I). This is an oxidising agent. Sodium chlorate(I) is alkaline because it reacts reversibly with water to form the weak acid chloric(I) acid together with hydroxide ions.
Also Know, does acetone give iodoform test?
The only aldehyde able to undergo this reaction is acetone because it is the only aldehyde with a methyl attached to the alpha position of the carbonyl. Only one aldehyde and only one primary alcohol give a positive iodoform test.
What happens when acetone reacts with HCN?
When acetone react with HCN it gives the nucleophilic addition product know as acetone cyanohydrin. The product have both affinity towards oxidation as well as reduction that depends on reactant used .
