    Here - codeine and heroin

    Identify a reagent that would react only with codeine, with an observation that would confirm the reaction had taken place.

    My answer - acidified potassim dichromate, orange ---> green, as secondary alcohol is oxidised to ketone in codeine.

    Is that right?
