Detection of Halogens in an Organic Compound – MeitY OLabs

Detection of Halogens in an Organic Compound There are many organic compounds containing halogens such as: fluorine, chlorine, bromine and iodine. They are called organohalogen compounds. Some commonly known examples are carbon tetrachloride, chlorofluoro carbons, DDT, iodomethane and bromobenzene. Upon fusion with sodium metal, the halogens in the organic compound are converted to ionic sodium […]

Detection of Nitrogen in an Organic Compound – MeitY OLabs

Detection of Nitrogen in an Organic Compound There are many organic compounds such as amines, amides, nitro compounds and urea containing nitrogen as one of the main elements. Nitrogen is covalently bonded to the organic compound. Upon fusion with sodium metal, the covalently bonded nitrogen is converted to ionic sodium cyanide, which can be extracted […]
