Question 40.
Describe the reactions involved in the detection of nitrogen in an organic compound by Lassaigne method.
This method involves the conversion of covalently bonded N, S or halogen present in the organic compounds to corresponding water soluble ions in the form of sodium salts For this purpose a freshly cut piece of Na of the size of a paper, dried it by pressing between the folds of a filter paper is taken in a fusion tube in an iron tand clamping it just near the upper end and it is gently heated.

When it melts to a shiñing globule, put a pinch of the organic compound on it. Heat the tube with the tip of the flame till all reaction ceases and it becomes red hot. Now plunges it in about 50 mL of distilled water taken in a china dish and break the bottom of the tube by striding against the dish. Boil the contents of the dish for about 10 mts and filter. This filtrate is known as lassaignes extract or sodium fusion extract and it used for qualitative analysis of nitrogen, sulfur and halogens present in organic compounds.

Test for Nitrogen:
If nitrogen is present it gets converted to sodium cyanide which on reaction with freshly prepared ferrous sulphate and ferric ion followed by cone. HCl gives a Prussian blue color or green color or precipitate. It confirms the presence of nitrogen. HCl is added to dissolve the greenish precipitate of ferrous hydroxide produced by the excess of NaOH on FeSO4 which would otherwise mark the Prussian blue precipitate. The following reaction takes part in the formation of Prussian blue.

Question 41.
Give the principle involved in the estimation of halogen in an organic compound by Carius method.
Estimation of halogens (Carius method):
A known mass of the organic compound is heated with fuming HNO3 along with AgNO3. C, H & S gets oxidized to CO2, H2O, SO2 and halogen combines with AgNO3 to form a precipitate of silver halide.

The ppt of AgX is filtered, washed, dried and weighed. From the mass of AgX and the mass of the organic compound taken, percentage of halogens are calculated.

A known mass of the substance is taken along with fuming HNO3 and AgNO3 is taken in a clean carius tube. The open end of the Carius tube is sealed and placed in a iron tube for 5 hours in the range at 530 – 540 K Then the tube is allowed to cool and a small hole is made in the tube to allow gases produced to escape. The tube is broken and the ppt is filtered, washed, dried and weighed. From the mass of AgX obtained, calculations are made.

Calculation:
Weight of the organic compound: w g
Weight of AgCl precipitate = a g
143. 5 g of AgCl contains 35.5 g of Cl
∴ a g of AgCl contains $$\frac{35.5}{143.5}$$ × a
w g Organic compound gives a g AgCl
Percentage of Cl in w g organic compound = $$\left(\frac{35.5}{143.5} \times \frac{\mathrm{a}}{\mathrm{w}} \times 100\right) \%$$
Let Weight of silver Bromide be ‘b’ g
188 g of AgBr contains 80 g of Br
∴ b g of AgBr contains $$\frac{80}{180} \times \frac{b}{w}$$ of Br
w g Organic compound gives b g AgBr
Percentage of Br in w g organic compound = $$\left(\frac{80}{180} \times \frac{b}{w} \times 100\right) \%$$
Let Weight of silver Iodide be ‘c’ g
235 g of AgI contains 127 g of I
∴ C g of AgI contains $$\left(\frac{127}{235} \times \frac{c}{w}\right)$$ of I
w g Organic compound gives c g AgI
percentage of I in w g organic compound = $$\left(\frac{80}{180} \times \frac{b}{w} \times 100\right) \%$$

Question 42.
Give a brief description of the principles of
(i) Fractional distillation
(ii) Column Chromatography
(i) Fractional distillation:
This is one method to purify and separate liquids present in the mixture having their boiling point close to each other. In the fractional distillation, a fractionating column is fitted with distillation flask and a condenser. A thermometer is fitted in the fractionating column near the mouth of the condenser. This will enable to record the temperature of vapour passing over the condenser.

The process of separation of the components in a liquid mixture at their respective boiling points in the form of vapours and the subsequent condensation of those vapours is called fractional distillation. The process of fractional distillation is repeated, if necessary. This method finds a remarkable application in distillation of petroleum, coal-tar and crude oil.

(ii) Column Chromatography:
This is the simplest chromatographic method carried out in long glass column having a stop cock near the lower end. This method involves separation of a mixture over a column of adsorbent (Stationery phase) packed in a column. In the column a plug of cotton or glass wool is placed at the lower end of the column to support the adsorbent powder. The tube is uniformly packed with suitable adsorbent constitute the stationary phase. (Activated aluminum oxides (alumina), Magnesium oxide, starch are also used as adsorbents).

The mixture to be separated is placed on the top of the adsorbent column. Eluent which is a liquid or a mixture of liquids is allowed to flow down the column slowly. Different components depending upon the degree to which the components are adsorbed and complete separation takes place. The most readily adsorbed substances are retained near the top and others come down to various distances in the column.

Question 43.
Explain paper chromatography.
Paper chromatography (PC) is an example of partition chromatography. The same procedure is followed as in thin layer chromatography except that a strip of ‘ paper acts as an adsorbent. This method involves continues differential portioning of components of a mixture between stationary and mobile phase. In paper chromatography, a special quality paper known as chromatography paper is used. This paper act as a stationary phase.

A strip of chromatographic paper spotted at the base with the solution of the mixture is suspended in a suitable solvent which act as the mobile phase. The solvent rises up and flows over the spot. The paper selectively retains different components according to their different partition in the two phases where a chromatogram is developed. The spots of the separated colored compounds are visible at different heights from the position of initial spots . on the chromatogram. The spots of the separated colorless compounds may be observed either under ultraviolent light or by the use of an appropriate spray reagent.

Question 44.
Explain various types of constitutional isomerism (structural isomerism) in organic compounds.
Structural isomerism:
This type of isomers have same molecular formula but differ in their bonding sequence.

(a) Chain or nuclear or skeletal isomerism:
These isomers differ in the way in which the carbon atoms are bonded to each other in a carbon chain or in other words isomers have similar molecular formula but differ in the nature of the carbon skeleton (ie. Straight or branched).

(b) Position isomerism:
If different compounds belonging to same homologous series with the same molecular formula and carbon skeleton, but differ in the position of substituent or functional group or an unsaturated linkage are said to exhibit position isomerism.

(c) Functional isomerism:
Different compounds having same molecular formula but different functional groups are said to exhibit functional isomerism.
Molecular formula C3H6O
CH3 – CH2 – CHO
propanal (aldehyde group)

Question 45.
Describe optical isomerism with suitable example.
Compounds having same physical and chemical property but differ only in the rotation of plane of the polarized light are known as optical isomers and the phenomenon is known as optical isomerism.
Example:
Some organic compounds such as glucose have the ability to rotate the plane of the plane polarized light and there called are said to be optically active compounds and this property of a compound is called optical activity. The optical isomer, which rotates the plane of the plane polarised light to the right or in clockwise direction is said to be dextrorotary (dexter means right) denoted by the sign (+), whereas the compound which rotates to the left or anticlockwise is said to be leavorotatory (leavues means left) denoted by sign (-). Dextrorotatory compounds are represented as ‘d’ or by sign (+) and leavorotatory compounds are represented as ‘l’ or by sign (-).

Question 46.
Briefly explain geametrical isomerism in alkene by considering 2-butene as an example.
Geometrical isomers are the stereoisomers which have different arrangement of groups or atoms around a rigid frame work of double bonds. This type of isomerism occurs due to restricted rotation of double bonds, or about single bonds in cyclic compounds.

In alkenes, the carbon-carbon double bond is sp2 hybridized. The carbon-carbon double bond consists of a σ bond and a π bond. The π bond is formed by the head on overlap of sp2 hybrid orbitals. The n bond is formed by the side-wise overlap of ‘p’ orbitals. The presence of the π bond lock the molecule in one position. Hence, rotation around C = C bond is not possible. This restriction of rotation about C – C double bond is responsible for geometrical isomerism in alkenes.

These two compounds are termed as geometrical isomers and are distinguished from each other by the terms c is and trans. The c is isomer is one in which two similar groups are on the same side of the double bond. The trans isomers is that in which the two similar groups are on the opposite side of the double bond, hence this type of isomerism is often called cis- trans isomerism.

The cis-isomer can be converted to trans isomer or vice versa is only if either isomer is heated to a high temperature or absorbs light. The heat supplies the energy (about 62kcal/ mole) to break the n bond so that rotation about a bond becomes possible. Upon cooling, the reformation of the n bond can take place in two ways giving a mixture both cis and trans forms of trans-2-butene and cis-2-butene.

Question 47.
0.30 g of a substance gives 0.88 g of carbon dioxide and 0.54 g of water calculate the percentage of carbon and hydrogen in it.
Solution:
Weight of organic compound = 0.30 g
Weight of carbon dioxide = 0.88 g
Weight of water = 0.54 g

Percentage of carbon:
44 g of carbondioxide contains, carbon = 12 g
0.88 g of carbon dioxide contains, carbon = $$\frac{12 \times 0.88}{44}$$ g
0.30 g substance contains,
carbon = $$\frac{12 \times 0.88}{44}$$ g

100 g substance Contains $$\frac{12 \times 0.88}{44}$$ × $$\frac{100}{0.30}$$ = 80 g of carbon
Percentage of carbon = 80 %

Percentage of hydrogen:
18 g of water contains, hydrogen = 2 g
0.54 g of water contains, hydrogen = $$\frac{2 \times 0.54}{18}$$ g
0.30 g of substance contains hydrogen = $$\frac{2 \times 0.54}{18 \times 0.30}$$ g
100 g of substance contains = $$\frac{2 \times 0.54}{18 \times 0.30}$$ × 100 g = 20 g of hydrogen
Percentage of hydrogen = 20 %

Question 48.
The ammonia evolved form 0.20 g of an organic compound by Kjeldahl method neutralized 15 ml of N / 20 sulphuric acid solution. Calculate the percentage of Nitrogen.
weight of organic compound = 0.20 g
Normality of acid = $$\frac{\mathrm{N}}{20}$$
Volume of standard acid neitralized by ammonia = 15 ml
1000 ml of N ammonia contains = 14 g of nitrogen
15 ml of ammonia of normality $$\frac{\mathrm{N}}{20}$$ contains nitrogen = $$\frac{14 \times 15 \times 1}{1000 \times 20}$$

0.20 g of compound contains nitrogen = $$\frac{14 \times 15}{1000 \times 20}$$

100 g of compound contains nitrogen = $$\frac{14 \times 15 \times 100}{1000 \times 20 \times 0.20}$$ = 5.25 g
Percentage of nitrogen = 5.25 %

Question 49.
0.32 g of an organic compound, after heating with fuming nitric acid and barium nitrate crystals is a sealed tube gave 0. 466 g of barium sulphate. Determine the percentage of sulphur in the compound.
Solution:
Mass of the substance taken = 0.32 g
Mass of BaSO4 formed = 0.466 g
Molecular mass of BaSO4 = 137 + 32 + 64 = 233
Then, mass of S in 0.466 g of BaSO4 = $$\frac{0.466 \times 32}{233}$$

Percentage of S in compound= $$\frac{0.466 \times 32 \times 100}{233 \times 0.32}$$ = 20 %

Question 50.
0.24 g of an organic compound gave 0.287 g of silver chloride in the carius method. Calculate the percentage of chlorine in the compound.
Solution:
Mass of organic compound = 0.24 g
Mass of silver chloride = 0.287 g
143. 5 g AgCl contains = 35.5 g chlorine
0.287 g of AgCl contains = $$\frac{35.5}{143.5}$$ × 0.287

Percentage of chlorine = $$\frac{35.5}{143.5} \times \frac{0.287}{0.24}$$ × 100 = 29.58 %

Question 51.
In the estimation of nitrogen present in an organic compound by Dumas method 0.35 g yielded 20.7 mL of nitrogen at 15° C and 760 mm pressure. Calculate the percentage of nitrogen in the compound.
Solution:
Volume of N2 at NTP = $$\frac{V \times P}{t+273} \times \frac{273}{760}$$
= V0 ml
Substituting the various values in the above equation,
V0 = $$\frac{20.7 \times 760}{288} \times \frac{273}{760}$$ = 19.62 ml

weight of 19.62 ml of Nitrogen = $$\frac{28}{22400}$$ × 19.62 g

∴ Percentage of Nitrogen = $$\frac{28}{22400}$$ × 19.62 × $$\frac{100}{0.35}$$
= 4.9 %

Question 10.
Explain the copper oxide test for the detection of carbon and hydrogen present in the given organic compound.
Copper oxide test:
The organic substance is mixed intimately with about three times its weight of dry copper oxide by grinding. The mixture is then placed in a hard glass test tube fitted with a bent delivery tube. The other end of which is dipping into lime water in an another test tube. The mixture is heated strongly and the following reaction take place.
C + 2CuO → CO2 + 2CuO
2H + CuO → H2O + Cu

Thus if carbon is present, it is oxidized to CO2 which turns lime water millcy. If hydrogen is also present, it will be oxidized to water which condenses in small droplets on the cooler wall of the test tube and inside the bulb. Water collected in the bulb is separated on anhydrous CuSO4 which turn blue. This confirms the presence of C and H in the compound. If however, H is not present water droplet is not obtained in the bulb.

Solution:
Weight of organic compound = 0.2175 g
Weight of BaSO4 = 0.5825 g
233 g of BaSO4 contains = $$\left(\frac{32}{233} \times \frac{0.5825}{0.2175}\right)$$
0.5825 g of BaSO4 contains
Percentage of S = $$\left(\frac{32}{233} \times \frac{0.5825}{0.2175} \times 100\right)$$
= 36.78 %

= $$\frac{62}{222} \times \frac{0.397}{0.33} \times 100$$ = 33. 59 %

Question 18.
Explain simple distillation process with suitable example.
The process of distillation involves the impure liquid when boiled gives out vapour and the vapour so formed is collected and condensed to give back the pure liquid in the receiver. This method is called simple distillation. Liquids with large difference in boiling point(about 40k) and do not decompose under ordinary pressure can be purified by simple distillation.
Example:
The mixture of C6H5NO2 (b.p 484K) &
C6H6 (354 K) and mixture of diethyl ether (b.p 308K) and ethyl alcohol (b.p 35 K).

Question 19.
How will you purify an organic compound by differential extraction process?
The process of removing a substance from its aqueous solution by shaking with a suitable organic solvent is termed extraction. When an organic substance present as solution in water can be recovered from the solution by means of a separating funnel. The aqueous solution is taken in a separating funnel with little quantity of ether or chloroform (CHCl3).

The organic solvent immiscible with water will form a separate layer and the contents are shaken gently. The solute being more soluble in the organic solvent is transfered to it. The solvent layer is then separated by opening the tap of the separating funnel, and the substance is recovered.

Question 20.
Explain the steam distillation process for purifying organic compound.
This method is applicable for solids and liquids. If the compound to be steam distilled the compound should not decompose at the steam temperature, should have a fairly high vapour pressure at 373 K, it should be insoluble in water; the impurities present should be non-volatile.

The impure liquid along with little water is taken in a round-bottom flask which is connected to a boiler on one side and water condenser on the other side, the flask is kept in a slanting position so that no droplets of the mixture will enter into the condenser on the brisk boiling and bubbling of steam. The mixture in the flask is heated and then a current of steam passed in to it. The vapours of the compound mix up with steam and escape into the condenser.

The condensate obtained is a mixture of water and organic compound which can be separated. This method is used to recover essential oils from plants and flowers, also in the manufacture of aniline and turpentine oil.

Question 21.
Write a note on azeotropic distillation with suitable example.
These are the mixture of liquids that cannot be separated by fractional distillation. The mixtures that can be purified only by azeotropic distillation are called as azeotropes. These azeotropes are constant boiling mixtures, which distil as a single compound at a fixed temperature. Ethanol and water are the most common examples of azeotropic mixture in the ratio of 95.87 : 4.13.

In this method apart from azeotropic mixture a third component like C6H6, CCl4, ether, glycerol, glycol which act as a dehydrating agent depress the partial pressure of one component so that the boiling point of that component is raised sufficiently and thus other component will distill over.

Dehydrating agents like C6H6, CCl4 have low boiling points and reduce the partial vapour pressure of alcohol more than that of water whereas glycerol & glycol, etc. have high boiling point and reduce the partial vapour pressure of water more than that of alcohol.

Question 22.
What is Ring chain isomerism? Give an example.
In this type of isomerism, compounds having same molecular formula but differ terms of bonding of carbon atom to form open-chain and cyclic structures.

Question 23.
Briefly explain geometrical isomerism in oximes with suitable example.
Ans:
Restricted rotation around C = N (oximes) gives rise to geometrical isomerism in oximes. Here ‘syn’ and ‘anti’ are used instead of cis and trans respectively. In the syn isomer the H atom of a doubly bonded carbon and -OH group of doubly bonded nitrogen lie on the same side of the double bond, while in the anti isomer, they lie on the opposite side of the double bond.

Question 2.
Explain the methods for the representation of structure of organic compounds with suitable example.
The structure of an organic compound can he represented using any one of the below mentioned methods.

1. Lewis structure or dot structure,
2. Dash structure or line bond structure,
3. Condensed structure
4. Bond line structure

We know how to draw the Lewis structure for a molecule. The line bond structure is obtained by representing the two electron covalent bond by a dash or line (-) in a Lewis structure. A single line or dash represents single a covalent bond, double line represents double bond (1 σ bond, 2 π bond) and a triple line represents triple bond (1 σ bond, 2 π bond). Lone pair of electrons on hetero atoms may or may not be shown. This represents the complete structural formula.

This structural formula can be further abbreviated by omitting some or all of the dashes representing covalent bonds and by indicating the number of identical groups attached to an atom by a subscript. The resulting expression of the compound is called a condensed structural formula.

For further simplification, organic chemists use another way of representing the structures in which only lines are used. In this type of representation of organic compounds, carbon and hydrogen atoms are not shown and the lines representing carbon-carbon bonds are shown in a zigzag fashion. The only atoms specifically written are oxygen, chlorine, nitrogen etc. These representations can be easily understood by the following illustration.

Question 3.
Explain the molecular model method for the representation of structure of organic compounds.
Molecular models:

Molecular models are physical devices that are used for a better visualisation and perception of three dimensional shapes of organic molecules. These are made of wood, plastic or metal and are commercially available.
(i) Frame work model
(ii) Ball and stick model &
(iii) space filling model.

In the frame work model only the bonds connecting the atoms themselves are shown. This model emphasizes the pattern of bonds of a molecule while ignoring the size of the atom.

In the ball and stick model, both the atoms and the bonds are shown. Ball represent atoms and the stick a bond. Compounds containing C = C can be best represented by using springs in place of sticks and this model is termed as ball and spring model.

The space filling model emphasizes the relative size of each atom based on its Vander Waals radius.

Question 4.
Explain briefly
(i) Fisher projection
(ii) sawhorse projection
(iii) Newman projection formula with neat example.
(i) Fisher projection formula:
This is a method of representing three dimensional structures in two dimension. In this method, the chiral atom(s) lies in the plane of paper. The horizontal substituents are pointing towards the observer and the vertical substituents are away from the observer. Fisher projection formula for tartaric acid is given below.

Sawhorse projection formula:
Here the bond between two carbon atoms is drawn diagonally and slightly elongated. The lower left hand carbon is considered lying towards the front and the upper right hand carbon towards the back. The Fischer projection inadequately portrays the spatial relationship between ligands attached to adjacent atoms. The sawhorse projection attempts to clarify the relative location of the groups.

Newman projection formula:
In this method the molecules are viewed from the front along the carbon-carbon bond axis. The two carbon atom forming a bond is represented by two circles. One behind the other so that only the front carbon is seen. The front carbon atom is shown by a point whereas the carbon lying further from the eye is represented by the origin of the circle. Therefore, the C-H bonds of the front carbon are depicted from the circle while C-H bonds of the back carbon are drawn from the circumference of the circle with an angle of 120° to each other.

Question 5.
What is Tautomerism? Explain different types of Tautomerism with suitable example.
Tautomerism:
It is a special type of functional isomerism in which a single compound exists in two readily inter con-vertible structures that differ markedly in the relative position of atleast one atomic nucleus, generally hydrogen. The two dif¬ferent structures are known as tautomers. There are several types of tautomerism and the two important types are dyad and triad systems.

In this system hydrogen atom oscillates between two directly linked polyvalent atoms.
Example:

In this example hydrogen atom oscillates between carbon & nitrogen atom.

In this system hydrogen atom oscillates between three polyvalent atoms. It involves 1, 3 migration of hydrogen atom from one polyvalent atom to other within the molecule. The most important type of triad system is keto-enol tautomerism and the two groups of tautomers are ketoform and enol-form. The polyvalent atoms involved are one oxygen and two carbon atoms. Enolisation is a process in which keto-form is converted to enol form. Both tautomeric forms are not equally stable. The less stable form is known as labile form.

Question 6.
How is sulphur detected by Lassaigne test?
a) To a portion of the lassaigne’s extract, add freshly prepared sodium nitro prusside solution. A deep violet colouration is obtained. This test is also used to detect S2- in inorganic salt analysis.
Na2S + Na2 [Fe(CN5) NO] → Na4 [Fe (CN5) NOS]
sodium nitro prusside

b) Acidify another portion of lassaigne’s extract with acetic acid and add lead acetate solution. A black precipitate is obtained.
(CH3COO)2Pb + Na2S → PbS↓ + 2CH3COONa
(black ppt)

c) Oxidation test:
The organic substances are fused with a mixture of KNO3 and Na2CO3. The sulphur, if present is oxidized to sulphate.
Na2CO3 + S + 3O + Na2SO4 + CO2
The fused mass is extracted with water, acidified with HCl and then BaCl2 solution is added to it. A white precipitate indicates the pressure of sulphur.
BaCl2 + Na2SO4 -> BaSO4 + 2NaCl

Question 7.
How is halogen detected by using Lassaigne test?
To another portion of the Lassaigne’s filtrate add dil HNO3 warm gently and add AgNO3
Solution:
a) Appearance of curdy white precipitate soluble in ammonia solution indicates the presence of chlorine.
b) Appearance of pale yellow precipitate sparingly soluble in ammonia solution indicates the presence of bromine.
c) Appearance of a yellow precipitate insoluble in ammonia solution indicates the presence of iodine.

Na + NaX ( where X = Cl, Br, I)
from organic compound
NaX + AgNO3 → AgX + NaNO3

If N or S is present in the compound along with the halogen, we might obtain NaCN and Na2S in the solution, which interfere with the detection of the halogen in the AgNO3 test Therefore we boil the lassaignes extract with HNO3 which decomposes NaCN and Na2S as

NaCN + HNO3 NaNO3 + HCN T
Na2S + 2HNO3 2NaNO3 + H2S
NaCN + AgNO3 AgCN + NaNO3
white ppt confusing with AgCl
Na2S + AgNO3 → Ag2S ↓ + NaNO3
black ppt

Question 8.
How will you estimate carbon and hydrogen present in the given organic compound?
Both carbon and hydrogen are estimated by the same method. A known weight of the organic substance is burnt in excess of oxygen and the carbon and hydrogen present in it are oxidized to carbon dioxide and water, respectively.
CXHY + O2 + XCO2 + $$\frac{\mathrm{y}}{2}$$H2O

The weight of carbon dioxide and water thus formed are determined and the amount of carbon and hydrogen in the original substance is calculated. The apparatus employed for the purpose consists of three units (1) oxygen supply (2) combustion tube (3) absorption apparatus.

Oxygen supply:
To remove the moisture from oxygen it is allowed to bubble through sulphuric acid contained in a drech gel bottle and then passed through a U-tube charged with soda lime to remove CO2. The oxygen gas free from moisture and carbon dioxide enters the combustion tube.

Combustion tube:
A hard glass tube open at both end is used for the combustion of the organic substance. It is filled with
(i) a role of oxidized copper gauze to prevent the backward diffusion of the product of combustion
(ii) a porcelain boat containing a known weight of the organic substance
(iii) coarse copper oxide packed in about 2/3 of the entire length of the tube, and kept in position by loose asbestos plugs on either side and
(iv) a roll of oxidized copper gauze placed towards the end of the combustion tube to prevent any vapours of the organic substance having the tube unoxidized. The combustion tube is enclosed in a furnace, and heated by a gas burner.

Absorption Apparatus:
The products of combustion containing moisture and carbon dioxide are then passed through the absorption apparatus which consists of
(i) a weighed U-tube packed with pumice soaked in Conc. H2SO4 to absorb water
(ii) a set of bulbs containing strong solution of KOH to absorb CO2 and finally
(iii) a guard tube filled with anhydrous CaCl2 to prevent the entry of moisture from atmosphere.

Procedure:
To start with, before loading it with the boat, the combustion tube is detached from the absorption unit. The tube is heated strongly to dry its content and CO2 present in it is removed by passing a current of pure, dry oxygen through it. It is then cooled slightly and connected to the absorption apparatus. The other end of the combustion tube is open for a while and the boat containing weighed organic substance is introduced.

The tube is again heated strongly till the substance in the boat is burnt away. This takes about 2 hours. Finally, a strong current of oxygen is passed through the combustion tube to sweep away any traces of carbon dioxide or moisture which may have been left in it. The U-tube and the potash bulbs are then detached and the increase in weight of each of them is determined.

Calculation:
Weight of the organic substance taken = w g
Increase in weight of H2O = x g
Increase in weight of CO2 = y g
18 g of H2O contain 2 g of hydrogen
∴ x g of H2O contain = $$\left(\frac{2}{18} \times \frac{x}{w}\right)$$
% of hydrogen = $$\left(\frac{2}{18} \times \frac{x}{w} \times 100\right)$$ %

44 g of CO2 contains = 12 g of carbon
∴ y g of CO2 contain = $$\left(\frac{12}{44} \times \frac{y}{w}\right)$$ g of carbon
Percentage of carbon = $$\left(\frac{12}{44} \times \frac{y}{w} \times 100\right)$$ %

Question 9.
Explain the Carius method for the estimation of sulphur in an organic compound.
Estimation of sulphur Carius method:
A known mass of the organic substance is heated strongly with fuming HNO3, C & H get oxidized to CO2 & H2O while sulphur is oxidized to sulphuric acid as per the following reaction.

C CO2
2H H2O
S → SO2  H2SO4

The resulting solution is treated with excess of BaCl2 solution H2SO4 present in the solution in quantitatively converted into BaSO4, from the mass of BaSO4, the mass of sulphur and hence the percentage of sulphur in the compound can be calculated.

Procedure:
A known mass of the organic compound is taken in clean carius tube and added a few mL of fuming HNO3. The tube is the sealed. It is then placed in an iron tube and heated for about 5 hours. The tube is allowed to cool to temperature and a small hole is made to allow gases produced inside to escape.

The carius tube is broken and the content collected in a beaker. Excess of BaCl2 is added to the beaker H2SO4 acid formed as a result of the reaction is converted to BaSO4. The precipitate of BaSO4 is filtered, washed, dried and weighed. From the mass of BaSO4, percentage of S is found.

Mass of the organic compound = w g
Mass of the BaSO4 formed = x g
233 g of BaSO4 contains = 32 g of sulphur

∴ x g of BaSO4 contain = $$\left(\frac{32}{233} \times \frac{x}{w}\right)$$ g of S

Percentage of sulphur = ($$\left(\frac{32}{233} \times \frac{x}{w}\right)$$ × 100) %

Question 10.
0.26 g of an organic compound gave 0.039 g of water and 0.245 g of carbon dioxide on combustion. Calculate the percentage of C & H.
Weight of organic compound = 0.26 g
Weight of water = 0.039 g
Weight of CO2 = 0.245 g
Percentage of hydrogen
18 g of water contain 2 g of hydrogen
0.039 of water contain = $$\left(\frac{2}{18} \times \frac{0.039}{0.26}\right)$$ of hydrogen

% of hydrogen = $$\left(\frac{0.039}{0.26} \times \frac{2}{18} \times 100\right)$$ = 1.66%
Percentage of Carbon
44 g of CO2 contain 12 g of C
0.245 g of CO2 contains $$\left(\frac{12}{44} \times \frac{0.245}{0.26}\right)$$ g of C

% of Carbon = $$\left(\frac{12}{44} \times \frac{0.245}{0.26} \times 100\right)$$ = 25.69 %

Question 11.
0.2346 of an organic compound yielded C, H & 0 0.2754 g of H2O and 0.4488 g CO2. Calculate the % composition.
Solution:
Weight of organic substance w = 0.2346 g
Weight of water (x) = 0.2754 g
Weight of CO2 (y), = 0.4488 g
Percentage of carbon = $$\left(\frac{12}{44} \times \frac{y}{w} \times 100\right)$$

= $$\left(\frac{12}{44} \times \frac{0.4488}{0.2346} \times 100\right)$$ = 52.17 %

Percentage of hydrogen = $$\left(\frac{2}{18} \times \frac{x}{w} \times 100\right)$$
= $$\left(\frac{2}{18} \times \frac{0.2754}{0.2346} \times 100\right)$$ = 13. 04%
Percentage of oxygen= [100 – (52.17 + 13.04)]
= 100 – 65.21 = 34.79 %

Question 12.
Explain the estimation of phosphours by Carius method.
Carius method:
A known mass of the organic compound (w) containing phosphorous is heated with fuming HNO in a sealed tube where C is converted into CO2 and H to H2O. phosphorous present in organic compound is oxidized to phosphoric acid which is precipitated, as ammonium phosphomolybdate by heating with Cone. HNO3 and then adding ammonium molybdate.

H3PO4 + 12(NH4)2MoO4 + 21 HNO3  (NH4)3PO4 + 21 NH4NO3 + 12HNO3

The precipitate of ammonium phosphomolybdate thus formed is filtered washed, dried, and weighed. In an alternative method, the phosphoric acid is precipitated as magnesium-ammonium phosphate by adding magnesia mixture (a mixture containing MgCl2, NH4Cl, and ammonia) This ppt is washed, dried, and ignited to get magnesium pyrophosphate which is washed, dried a weighed. The following are the reaction that takes place.

By knowing the mass of the organic compound and the, mass of ammonium phosphomolybdate or magnesium pyrophosphate formed, the percentage of P is calculated.

Mass of organic compound = w g
Weight of ammonium phosphomolybdate = x g
Weight of magnesium pyrophosphate = y g
Mole mass of (NH4)3PO4. 12MoO3 is = 1877 g
[3 × (14 + 4) + 31 + 4(16)]+ 12(96 + 3 × 16)
Molar mass of Mg3P2O7 is 222 g
(2 × 24) + (31 × 2) + (7 × 16)
1877 g of (NH4)3PO4. 12 MoO3 contains 31 g of P
X g of (NH4)3PO4. 12 MoO3 in w g of organic
compound contains $$\frac{31}{1877} \times \frac{x}{w}$$ of phosphorous
Percentage of phosphorous = $$\frac{31}{1877} \times \frac{x}{w}$$ (or)
227 of Mg2P2O7 contains 62 g of P
y g of Mg2P2O2 in w g of Organic compound contains = $$\frac{62}{227} \times \frac{y}{w}$$ of P

Percentage of phosphorous = $$\frac{62}{227} \times \frac{y}{w}$$%

Question 13.
Explain the estimation of nitrogen by Dumas method.
1. Dumas method:
This method is based upon the fact that nitrogenous compound when heated with cupric oxide in an atmosphere of CO2 yields free nitrogen. Thus
Cx Hy Nz + (2x + y/2) CuO → x CO2 + y/2 H2O Z/2 N2 +(2X + y/2)Cu.

Traces of oxide of nitrogen, which may be formed in some cases, are reduced to elemental nitrogen by passing overheated copper spiral. The apparatus used in Dumas method consists of CO2 generator, combustion tube, Schiffs nitrometer.

CO2 generator:
CO2 needed in this process is prepared by heating magnetite or sodium bicarbonate contained in a hard glass tube or by the action of dil. HCl on marble in a kipps apparatus. The gas is passed through the combustion tube after being dried by bubbling through Cone. H2SO4 contained in a Drechel bottle.

Combustion Tube:
The combustion tube is heated in a furnace is charged with
a) A roll of oxidized copper gauze to prevent the back diffusion of the products of combustion and to heat the organic substance mixed with CuO by radiation
b) a weighed amount of the organic substance mixed with an excess of CuO,
c) a layer, of course, CuO packed in about 2/3 of the entire length of the tube and kept in position by loose asbestos plug on either side; this oxidizes the organic vapors passing through it, and
d) a reduced copper spiral which reduces any oxides of nitrogen formed during combustion to nitrogen.

Schiff’s nitro meter:
The nitrogen gas obtained by the decomposition of the substance in the combustion tube is mixed with considerable excess of CO2 It is estimated by passing nitrometer when CO2 is absorbed by KOH and the nitrogen gets collected in the upper part of graduated tube.

Procedure:
To start with the tap of nitro meter is left open. CO2 is passed through the combustion tube to expels the air in it. When the gas bubbles rising through, the potash solution fails to reach the top of it and is completely absorbed it shows that only CO2 is coming and that all air has been expelled from the combustion tube. The nitrometer is then filled with KOH solution by lowering the reservoir and the tap is closed. The combustion tube is now heated in the furnace and the temperature rises gradually.

The nitrogen set free from the compound collects in the nitro meter. When the combustion is complete a strong current of CO2 is sent through, the apparatus in order to sweep the last trace of nitrogen from it. The volume of the gas gets collected is noted after adjusting the reservoir so that the solution in it and the graduated tube is the same. The atmospheric pressure and the temperature are also recorded.

Calculation:
Weight of the substance taken = w g
Volume of nitrogen = V1 L
Room Temperature = T1 K
Atmospheric Pressure = P mm of Hg
Aqueous tension at room temperature = P’ mm of Hg
Pressure of diy nitrogen = (P – P’) = P’ mm of Hg.
Let P0V0 and T0 be the pressure, volume and temperature respectively of dry nitrogen at STP,
Then,

Calculation of percentage of nitrogen, 22.4 L of N2 at STP weight 28 g of N2
∴ V0 L of N2 at S.T.P weigh = $$\frac{28}{22.4}$$ × V0
Wg Organic compound contain = $$\left(\frac{28}{22.4} \times \frac{\mathrm{V}_{\mathrm{o}}}{\mathrm{W}}\right)$$ of nitrogen

∴ percentage of nitrogen = $$\left(\frac{28}{22.4} \times \frac{\mathrm{V}_{\mathrm{o}}}{\mathrm{W}}\right)$$ × 100

Question 14.
0.1688 g when analyzed by the Dumas method yield 31.7 ml of moist nitrogen measured at 14°C and 758 mm mercury pressure. Determine the % of N in the substance (Aqueous tension at 14°C = 12 mm)
Solution:
Weight of Organic compound = 0.168 g
Volume of moist nitrogen (V1) = 31.7 mL
= 31.7 × 10-3 L
Temperature (T1) = 14°C = 14 + 273 = 287 K
Pressure of Moist nitrogen (P) = 758 mm Hg
Aqueous tension at 14°C =12 mm of Hg
∴ Pressure of dry nitrogen = (P – P1)
= 758 – 12 = 746 mm of Hg

Question 15.
Explain the estimation of nitrogen by Kjeldahl’s method.
This method is carried much more easily than the Dumas method. It is used largely in the analysis of foods and fertilizers. Kjeldahl’s method is based on the fact that when an organic compound containing nitrogen is heated with Conc. H2SO4, the nitrogen in it is quantitatively converted to ammonium sulphate. The resultant liquid is then treated with excess of alkali and then liberated ammonia gas absorbed in excess of standard acid. The amount of ammonia (and hence nitrogen) is determined by finding the amount of acid neutralized by back titration with same standard alkali.

Procedure:
A weighed quantity of the substance (0.3 to 0.5 g) is placed in a special long – necked Kjeldahl flask made of pyrex glass. About 25 mL of Cone. H2SO4 together with a little K2SO4 and CuSO 4 (catalyst) are added to it the flask is loosely stoppered by a glass bulb and heated gently in an inclined position. The heating is continued till the brown color of the liquid first produced, disappears leaving the contents clear as before. At this point all the nitrogen in the substance is converted to (NH4)2SO4.

The Kjeldahl flask is then cooled and its contents are diluted with same distilled water and then carefully transferred into a 1 lit round bottom flask. An excess NaOH solution is poured down the side of the flask and it is fitted with a Kjeldahl trap and a water condenser. The lower end of the condenser dips in a measured volume of excess the H2SO4 solution. The liquid in the round bottom flask is then heated and the liberated ammonia is distilled into sulphuric acid. The Kjeldahl trap serves to retain any alkali splashed up on vigorous boiling.

When no more ammonia passes over (test the distillate with red litmus) the receiver is removed. The excess of acid is then determined by titration with alkali, using phenolphthalein as the indicator.

Calculation:
Weight of the substance = w g
Volume of H2SO4 required for the complete neutralization of evolved NH3 = V ml.
Strength of H2S04 used to neutralize NH3 = N
Let the Volume and the strength of NH3 formed are V1 and N1 respectively.
We know that V1N1 = VN
The amount of nitrogen present in the = $$\frac{14 \times \mathrm{NV}}{1 \times 1000 \times \mathrm{w}}$$

Percentage of Nitrogen = $$\left(\frac{14 \times \mathrm{NV}}{1000 \times \mathrm{w}}\right)$$ × 100 %

Question 16.
0.6 g of an organic compound was kjeldalised and NH3 evolved was absorbed into 50 mL of semi – normal solution of H2SO4. The residual acid solution was diluted with distilled water and the volume made up to 150 mL. 20 mL of this diluted solution required 35 mL of $$\frac{\mathbf{N}}{20}$$ NaOH solution for complete neutralization. Calculate the % of N in the compound.
Solution:
Weight of Organic compound = 0.6 g
Volume of sulphuric acid taken = 50 mL
Strength of sulphuric acid taken = 0.5 N
20ml of diluted solution of unreacted sulphuric acid was neutralized by 35 mL of 0.05 N Sodium hydroxide
Strength of the diluted sulphuric aicd = $$\frac{35 \times 0.05}{20}$$ = 0.0875 N
Volume of the sulphuric acid remaining after reaction with Organic compound = V1 mL
Strength of the diluted H2SO4 = 0.5 N
Volume of the diluted H2SO4 = 150 mL
Strength of the diluted H2SO4 = 0.0875 N
V1 = $$\frac{150 \times 0.0875}{0.5}$$ = 26.25 ml
Volume of H2SO4 consumed by ammonia = 50 – 26.25 = 23.75 ml
23.75 ml of 0.5 N H2SO4 = 23.75 ml of 0.5 N NH3
The amount of Nitrogen present in the 0.6 g of organic compound = $$\frac{14 g}{1000 m L \times 1 N}$$ × 23.75 × 0.5 N = 0.166 g
Percentage of Nitrogen = $$\frac{0.166}{0.6}$$ × 100 = 27.66%

Question 17.
Explain the various steps involved in the purification of organic compounds by crystallization process.
(i) Selection of solvent:
Most of the organic substances being covalent do not dissolve in polar solvents like water, hence selection of solvent (suitable) becomes necessary. Hence the powdered organic substance is taken in a test tube and the solvent is added little by little with constant stirring and heating, till the amount added is just sufficient to dissolve the solute (ie) organic compound. If the solid dissolves upon heating and throws out maximum crystals on cooling, then the solvent is suitable. This process is repeated with other solvents like benzene, ether, acetone, and alcohol till the most suitably one is sorted out.

(ii) Preparation of solution:
The quantity to be purified is taken in a conical flash fitted with a reflux condenser. The solvent selected in first stage is also taken along with solute and the quantity of the solvent just enough to dissolve the whole solid on boiling. Small amount of are animal char-coal can be added before boiling to decolorize any colored substance. The heating may be done over a wire gauze or water bath depending upon the nature of liquid (ie) whether the solvent is low boiling or high boiling.

(iii) Filtration of hot solution:
The solution so obtained is filtered through a fluted filter paper placed in a hot water funnel.

(iv) Crystallization:
The hot filtrate is then allowed to cool. Most of the impurities are removed on the filter paper, the pure solid substance separate as crystal. When copious amount of crystal has been obtained, then the crystallization is complete. If the rate of crystallization is slow, it is induced either by scratching the walls of the beaker with a glass rod or by adding a few crystals of the pure compounds to the solution.

(v) Isolation and drying of crystals:
The crystals are separated from the mother liquor by filtration. Filtration is done under reduced pressure using a Bucher funnel. When the whole of the mother liquor has been drained into the filtration flask, the crystals are washed with small quantities of the pure cold solvent and then dried.

Question 18.
How will you purify an organic compound by Thin layer chromatography?
Rf = $$\frac{\text { Distance moved by the substance from baseline }(\mathrm{x})}{\text { Distance moved by the solvent from baseline }(\mathrm{y})}$$
