    Hey! So perhaps this is because it's 2am but I'm having trouble with a seemingly easy question from the June 2010 paper...
    Right so its question 7a, asking about a test to distinguish propanone from propan-1-ol.
    I chose warming with fehlings/benedict solution because the propanone can't be oxidised, and the alcohol can. The mark scheme says by using brady's reagent, which I have no problem with.
    But just why is fehlings/benedict wrong??
    Thanks
    EDIT: OKAY so it's because of the strength of the ox agents haha
