    Hey guys! I'm after some chemistry help for my exam and will be so grateful if anyone could offer me a helping hand!!!

    A) {Cr(OH)6}"-3 charge"...add hydrogen peroxide (bubbles of gas and heat produced)...................CrO4 "2-"
    State & explain the following
    Work out the oxidation state Of chromium in each compound.??
    What happened to chromium in terms of Redox in this reaction??


    B) Identifying organic solids
    What would you use the following to identify?
    1cm of sulphuric acid
    1 cm potassium dichromate solution
    *
    *
    *
    C) Identifying organic solids
    Acidified potassium dichromate changes from orange to blue green
    *The dichromate ions become chromium (III) ions. Is this oxidation or reduction?
    *What happens to the organic compounds in this test?
    Which organic compounds containing oxygen do not react with acidified potassium dichromate? Why do they not react?
    *
    *
    D) Identifying organic solids
    Draw the skeletal formula of three possible isomers of an alcohol containing 6 carbon atoms.
    This alcohol cannot be oxidised by acidified potassium dichromate

    Hey guys!

    A) {Cr(OH)6}"-3 charge"...add hydrogen peroxide (bubbles of gas and heat produced)...................CrO4 "2-"
    State & explain the following
    Work out the oxidation state Of chromium in each compound.??
    What happened to chromium in terms of Redox in this reaction??


    When we find the oxidation state of elements in a compound containing oxygen, if it is not a peroxide (nor is bonded to fluorine), we take oxygen to be -2, and hydrogen is +1 (unless hydrogen is bonded to a grp 1, 2 or 3 metal), so:

    Cr(OH)63- has 6 oxygens = 6x-2 = -12 and six hydrogens = 6 x +1, so 6OH- = -12+6 = -6
    The overall charge is -3, so the chromium charge must be the difference between the -6 charge and the net -3, so -3-6 = +3 so the oxidation number of Chromium is +3.

    I'll leave you to try and do the other one.

    B) Identifying organic solids
    What would you use the following to identify?
    1cm of sulphuric acid
    1 cm potassium dichromate solution


    acidified dichromate is an oxidising agent, so what do you know in organic chemistry that can be oxidised?

    C) Identifying organic solids
    Acidified potassium dichromate changes from orange to blue green
    *The dichromate ions become chromium (III) ions. Is this oxidation or reduction?
    *What happens to the organic compounds in this test?
    Which organic compounds containing oxygen do not react with acidified potassium dichromate? Why do they not react?


    The formula of dichromate is Cr2O72-, so work out the oxidation number of chromium in this species and then compare it is chromium (III) ions - has chromium been oxidised (become more positive) or reduced (become more negative)?

    As per the earlier question, it is an oxidising agent, so the organic compounds will have been oxidised.

    You should know of organic groups that cannot be oxidised. I'll give you one - tertiary alcohol, but there are some others too.

    D) Identifying organic solids
    Draw the skeletal formula of three possible isomers of an alcohol containing 6 carbon atoms.
    This alcohol cannot be oxidised by acidified potassium dichromate


    So you need to draw as many isomers as you can, perhaps while you'll getting confident with skeletal you might want to do with normal displayed formulae to help you. To give you a clue, you could have hexan-1-ol, hexan-2-ol etc and also you could have methyl groups coming off smaller chains. Do be careful not to draw the same molecule twice eg hexan-5-ol is the same as hexan-2-ol by symmetry.

    Tertiary alcohols cannot be oxidised, so find one of your structures which has the carbon with OH on also attached to three other carbons.
