  10. Boiling points in Carboxylic acids are higher than alcohols, ketones and aldehydes because of:
    • Polar -OH groups forming hydrogen bonds.
    • Dipole-dipole attractions increase boiling points.
    • Formation of Dimers (Carboxylics can do this) increases Boiling Point.
  11. 4 Carboxylic acids that are soluble in water:
    • Methanoic acid
    • Ethanoic acid
    • Proanoic acid
    • Butanoic acid
  12. 3 slightly soluble carboxylic acids in HOH:
    • Pentanoic acid
    • Hexanoic acid
    • Benzoic acid
  13. Carboxylic acid reacts with an alcohol to form an:
    Ester and HOH
  14. A monosaccharide that contains 4 carbon atoms, one of which is an aldehyde group is classified as a(n):
  15. In a disaccharide, two monsaccharides are joined by what kind of bond?
  16. Under acid hydrolysis conditions, starch is converted to:
    • Maltose
    • Glucose
  17. Maltose can be classified as a(n):
  18. Aluminum hydroxide
  19. Monosaccharide produced upon hydrolysis of Amylopectin:
  20. When a carboxylic acid and an alcohol react in the presence of an acid catalyst usually (H2SO4) the reaction is called:
