Use your knowledge of Chemistry to comment on the procedures which could be used to identify each liquid (3)
To the remaining solutions, reflux with oxidising agent e.g. potassium dichromate (orange). Only propan-1-ol will oxidise (colour change from orange to green). Butanone will not be oxidised so colour remains orange
