An organic compound A having the molecular formula C3H8O is a liquid at room temperature. The organic liquid A reacts with sodium metal to evolve a gas which bums causing a little explosion. When the organic liquid A is heated with concentrated sulphuric acid at 170 �C, it forms a compound B which decolourises bromine water. The compound B adds on one molecule of hydrogen in the presence of Ni as catalyst to form compound C which gives substitution reactions with chlorine.
(a) What is compound A?
(b) What is compound B?
(c) What type of reaction occurs when A is converted into B?
(d) What is compound C?
(e) What type of reaction takes place when B is converted into C?
(b) Compound B is propene (CH3-CH=CH2)
(c) Dehydration reaction
(d) Compound C is propane (CH3-CH2-CH3)
(d) Addition reaction
