formed if carobonyl compound present.
What does Tollens' reagent detect.
forms if aldehyde group present.
What is High density Lipoprotein ? HDL
A type of lipoprotein that can remove cholesterol from the arteries and transport it back to the liver for excretion or re-utilisation.
What is low density lipoprotein?
A type of lipoprotein that is responsible for carrying cholesterol from the liver to the tissues.
Increases risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Define delocalised electrons.
Electrons shared between
more than two
Why does Benzene not react with Bromine?
Electrons are delocalised.
Benzene has a lower electron density due to delocalised electrons.
Benzene cannot polarise Br
so can't react.
Why can Alkenes react with Bromine whilst Benzene can't?
Electrons are localised, only shared between two carbon atoms.
Higher electron density than Benzene.
Can polarise ( induce a dipole) Br
What forms when Phenol and sodium hydroxide react?
What forms when Phenol and Sodium react?
What forms when bromine is added to Phenol?
What can be observed when Bromine is added to phenol?
and a white precipitate forms.
Why is Phenol more reactive than Benzene?
Lone pair of electrons
occupying a p-orbital on the oxygen atom
into the ring.
The benzene ring in phenol is
Can polarise (
induce a dipole
) in Br
Give four uses for Phenols.
Resins for Paints.
What evidence is there to suggest against Kekulé's model.
Bond lengths of
Enthalpy change of hydrogenation
for benzene is too low.
What is the mechanism for the Nitration of Benzene?
What is the mechanism for the
of Bromine to Benzene?
What is the overall equation for the formation of the Nitronium ion?
Give four examples of Halogen carriers.
How does the catalyst FeBr
form the electrophile?
What are the products of base hydrolysis?
What are the products of an acid hydrolysis?
Acid acts as a catalyst
Describe esterification with Acid anyhydrides and alcohols.
Alcohol + acid anhydride → Ester +
Describe esterification with Carboxylic acids and alcohols.
Alcohol + Carboxylic acid ⇌ Ester + water
How soluble are carboxylic acids?
Carboxylic acids are soluble in
Soluble in water due to
As size increases solubility decreases.
Why is Methyl Benzene more reactive than Benzene?
Methyl groups tend to 'push' electrons towards the ring, increasing the electron density and therefore reactivity.
What are the conditions for esterification from carboxylic acids and alcohols?
Heat under reflux
What are the conditions for the esterification of alcohol and acid anyhydrides?
Gentle heating under reflux.
