    Hints:

    1) potassium dichromate(VI) is an oxidising agent.

    2) Distillation means you can get the first product formed as it is formed (in this sense) whilst the reflux essentially means you do not stop at the first product formed as the first product formed can perhaps be oxidised further, depending on the functionality.

    3) Find out what Fehling's reagent does.

    4) Acid and alcohols tend to react in the presence of acid catalyst to form a sweet smelling compounds called _______ ?

    5) Amines are basic/alkaline. Acids are well, acidic. What happens when you mix the two together, usually?
