The sodium fusion test, or Lassaigne’s test, is used in elemental analysis for the qualitative determination of the presence of foreign elements, namely halogens. A method of testing for the presence of a halogen, nitrogen, or sulphur in an organic compound. A sample is heated in a test tube with a pellet of sodium. The hot. A drop of ferric chloride is added to this solution. A prussian-blue precipitate of ferric ferrocyanide, Fe4[Fe(CN)6]3 is formed. The formation of the prussian blue.

Soluble in both ether and water. When a drop of phenol is heated a few crystals of sodium nitrite and 1 ml concentrated sulphuric acid a green or blue colouration develops. The molecular mass of a non-volatile organic compound can be determined by noting tet the elevation in boiling point of the solvent Ebullioscopic method or the depression in freezing point of the solvent Cryoscopic method produced by dissolving a definite mass of the substance in a known mass of the solvent.
In the preparation of silver salt, a hydrogen atom of the carboxylic group is replaced by a silver atom.
Organic compound containing oxygen is heated with graphite and CO formed is quantitatively converted into CO 2 on reaction with I 2 O 5. The method is based on the fact that when an organic compound containing halogen Cl, Br, or I is heated in a sealed tube with fuming nitric acid in presence of silver nitrate, silver halide is formed.
To detect the halogens, nitrogen and sulphur in an organic compound. Lead ethanoate or sodium nitroprusside gives a precipitate with any sulphur present. In this test, the organic compound is fused with metallic sodium to convert these elements into water soluble sodium salt.
It is based on the fact that silver salt of an organic acid on heating gives residue of metallic silver. In this method the accurately weighed organic compound 0. MOB20 View Course list. Silver nitrate test a.
This volume is converted to NTP conditions. Halogen is now calculated as in Carius method.
If no colour is observed the test is repeated as above but water substituted by absolute ethanol as solvent. This is done by fusing the organic compound with sodium metal. Detection of Sulphur 1.
Exact name of German article]]; see its history for attribution. If the simplest ratio obtained in step ii is not a whole number ratio, then multiply all the figures with a suitable integer lassakgne. Divide the percentage of each element by its atomic mass. The ionic compounds formed during the fusion are extracted in aqueous solution and can be detected by simple chemical tests. The vapours formed displace an equal volume of air into a graduated tube.
Hydrogen tezt also present in most of the organic compounds, but there are few exceptions, such as: Dibutyl Ether and Chlorobenzene: A clear solution in NaOH solution which on acidification gives an insoluble material indicates primary amine. This article may be expanded with text translated from the corresponding article in Spanish.
This gives the empirical or the simplest formula. It was developed by J.
The mixture of amines is treated with NaOH solution and toluene-p-sulphonyl chloride tesr warmed in a water bath and finally acidified with dil. The mixture is shaken with a solution of NaHCO 3the carbonyl compound forms a solid bisulphite compound which is filtered OH and decomposed with dil. NaOH solution and benzene sulphonyl chloride is added.
Diethyl Ketone and Acetic Acid: Polybasic acids and hydroxy acids polyhydric alcohols, polyhydroxy aldehydes and ketones sugars amino acids, amino alcohols, sulphuric acids.
These extra elements are usually detected by Lassaigne’s Test that was developed by the French Chemist J. The alcoholic group can be detected by the following tests:. Contraction on explosion and cooling.
It gives a purple colour with sodium nitroprusside due to the formation of sodium thionitroprusside. Test for Nitrogen Cyanide ion and hence nitrogen ion in the sample, may be detected by the Prussian blue test. When sodium bromide and sodium iodide in the Lassaigne’s extract is treated with chlorine water, the lassaigns and iodide oxidise to the rest halogens.
When the reagent is required, equal volumes of solution A and B are mixed and then dil. Sign in with your library card. The test tube is warmed until the pallets dissolve. It is then reduced to NTP conditions.
Its molecular formula is however.
