Q. 19

How do you conver

Answer :

(i) Benzoic acid to Benzaldehyde



• Benzoic acid is chlorinated with thinly chloride to obtain Benzoyl chloride.


• Benzoyl chloride is hydrogenated to obtain Benzaldehyde- Rosenmund’s reduction.


(ii) Ethyne to Ethanal



On treating alkynes with H2SO4 and HgSO4 , a molecule of water is added to form aldehydes.


(iii) Acetic acid to methane



• Acetic acid is first converted to its sodium salt.


• Sodium salt of acetic acid is heated with sodium hydroxide & calcium oxide to form methane. In this process a molecule of CO2 is lost.


OR


(i) Stephen Reaction



• On treating nitriles with stannous chloride in the presence of HCl, it is reduced to imine.


• Imine when hydrolysed results in aldehydes.


(ii) Wolff Kishner reduction



When a carbonyl compound is treated with hydrazine followed by heating with sodium or potassium hydroxide in boiling solvent like ethylene glycol, it gets reduced to a hydrocarbon. (CO group changes to CH2 group).


(iii) Etard reaction



On treating Toluene with chromyl chloride, methyl groul is oxidized to a chromium complex which on hydrolysis results in benzaldehyde.
