The reaction between alcohol and carboxylic acid is called esterification and is catalysed by an acid such as concentrated sulphuric acid. Alcohols react with acetyl chloride to form esters and gives out hydrogen chloride gas. The hydrogen chloride formed gives white fumes of ammonium chloride with ammonium hydroxide. When alcohol is warmed with sodium hydroxide solution and iodine, a yellow precipitate of iodoform is formed. Phenols are compounds containing a hydroxyl group attached to an aromatic ring. The simplest phenol is C 6 H 5 OH that is solid in winter and liquid in summer.
Phenols are generally colourless but are coloured when it comes in contact with air due to oxidation. Other examples of phenols are: o-cresol, m-cresol, p-cresol, quinol, catechol, resorcinol etc.
Phenol is a weak acid, it gives red colour with litmus paper. The dissociation of phenol in water is represented as follows:. When phenol is treated with sodium nitrite in the presence of concentrated sulphuric acid, deep blue or green colour is produced. The blue or green colour changes to red or brown colour on treatment with water. The red colour is due to the formation of indophenol. The red colour again changes to blue or green by the addition of strong alkali. The blue or green colour is due to the formation of indophenols anion.
Phenol on heating with phthaleic anhydride in the presence of sulphuric acid produces phenolphthalein, which is colourless. Phenolphthalein gives pink colour on treating with alkali.
About the Book
Aldehydes and Ketones are compounds containing carbonyl group. Carbonyl group consisting of a carbon atom bonded to oxygen atom by a double bond. In Aldehydes the carbonyl carbon is attached to atleast one hydrogen atom and to a carbon containing group aliphatic or aromatic radical. Formaldehyde is an exception, in which carbonyl group is attached to two hydrogen atoms. A positive result is indicated by the formation of an yellow or orange-red precipitate of 2,4-dinitrophenyl hydrazone. Most aldehydes and ketones give bisulphate addition product with sodium bisulphate, which is white crystalline in nature.
The major difference between aldehydes and ketones is that an aldehyde is readily oxidised to carboxylic acid whereas ketones cannot be oxidised easily. This difference forms the basis of the tests for distinguishing aldehydes and ketones. This is an important test to distinguish aldehydes from ketones.
The anion of the keton formed by a alkali reacts with nitroprusside ion to form a red coloured complex. Carboxylic acids are organic compounds containing carboxyl functional group. It is of two types aliphatic and aromatic. Aliphatic acids are soluble in water where as aromatic acids are sparingly soluble in water. Formic acid and acetic acid are the simplest aliphatic acid and benzoic acid is the simplest aromatic acid.
Formic acid and acetic acid are liquids. Carboxylic acids such as benzoic acid, oxalic acid, phthalic acid, tartaric acid etc are colourless crystalline solids. Carboxylic acid turns blue litmus red.
The hydroxyl group in carboxylic is far more acidic than that in alcohol. The dissociation of carboxylic acid is represented as:. Carboxylic acids reacts with sodium hydrogen carbonate to produce carbon dioxide gas which can be seen in the form of a brisk effervescence. Carboxylic acid reacts with alcohol in presence of conc. Amines are derivatives of ammonia in which one or more hydrogen atoms are replaced by alkyl or aryl groups.
When one of the three hydrogen atoms is replaced by alkyl or aryl group, primary amine is formed. It is generally represented as RNH 2.

Then add a few more and learn those. Every functional group below is eventually discussed at one point or another in the book. But the above list will give you what you need to continue on. And don't just look at the cards. Say and write the names and draw the structures. To test yourself, try going through your cards and looking at the names and then drawing their structure on a sheet of paper. Then try going through and looking at the structures and naming them. Writing is a good technique to help you memorize, because it is more active than simply reading.
Once you have the minimal list above memorized backwards and forwards, you're ready to move on. But don't stop learning the groups. If you choose to move on without learning the "lingo", then you're not going to understand the language of the chapters to come.
Light-induced modification of a carboxylic acid with an aminocyclopropenone -- ScienceDaily
Again, using the French analogy, it's like trying to ignore learning the vocabulary and then picking up a novel in French and expecting to be able to read it. In organic chemistry functional groups are submolecular structural motifs, characterized by specific elemental composition and connectivity, that confer reactivity upon the molecule that contains them.
Note: The table above is adapted from the Functional Groups table on Wikipedia. Combining the names of functional groups with the names of the parent alkanes generates a powerful systematic nomenclature for naming organic compounds. The non-hydrogen atoms of functional groups are always associated with each by covalent bonds , as well as with the rest of the molecule. When the group of atoms is associated with the rest of the molecule primarily by ionic forces, the group is referred to more properly as a polyatomic ion or complex ion.
And all of these are called radicals , by a meaning of the term radical that predates the free radical. The first carbon after the carbon that attaches to the functional group is called the alpha carbon. Alkanes have only single covalent bonds. Alkenes have at least one double bond. Alkynes have at least one triple bond.

The letters "I", "O", and "U" are not used. Furthermore, "O" and "U" would result in awkward pronunciations. Ether : Ethers were anesthetics used in the s. Kellogg also lived at the same time. Corn Flakes are made by Kellogg's. A rooster or cock C-O-C is the cornflake mascot.
Or, think there is a C on "either" side of the O. Aldehyde : This sounds like "Adelaide," the Australian city. Australia is at the end of the Asian islands, and aldehydes are at the end of the hydrocarbon chain. George's nickname was Koko or Coco. From Wikibooks, open books for an open world.
In other words, the carboxylic acid is modified with substituents on the aminocyclopropenone. The researchers hypothesized that the reaction proceeds via the following three steps. An acyloxyenamine is a adduct of a carboxylic acid and an ynamine. The researchers isolated the acyloxyenamine intermediate and investigated its optical properties and chemical reactivity. The results of the investigation strongly supported the hypothetical mechanism. Various primary and secondary carboxylic acids including amino acid derivatives were modified with the phototriggered reaction.
Using a terminal alkyne substituted aminocyclopropenone, the alkyne group was introduced into a carboxylic acid alkyne features a C? C triple bond. Because various functional groups can be selectively introduced to the alkyne scaffold by alkyne azide click chemistry, a broad range of functional groups can be introduced into a carboxylic acid by combination of the phototriggered alkyne introduction and the alkyne azide click reaction.
Application of this phototriggered reaction for modifying proteins and materials is now under investigation in the authors' group. Materials provided by Kanazawa University.
