VI. Long answer questions.

Question 1.
What is called a homologous series? Give any three of its characteristics?
Answer:
A homologous series is a group or a class of organic compounds having the same general formula and similar chemical properties in which the successive members differ by a – CH2 group.
Characteristics of homologous series:

• All members of a homologous series contain the same elements and functional group.
• All members of a homologous series can be prepared by a common method.
• Chemical properties of the members of a homologous series are similar.

Question 2.
Arrive at, systematically, the IUPAC name of the compound: CH3-CH2– CH2-OH.
Answer:
Step 1: The parent chain consists of 3 carbon atoms. The root word is ‘Prop’.
Step 2: There are single bonds between the carbon atoms of the chain. So, the primary suffix is ‘ane’.
Step 3: Since, the compound contains – OH group, it is an alcohol. The carbon chain is numbered from the end which is closest to – OH group. (Rule 3)

Step 4: The locant number of – OH group is l and thus the secondary suffix is ‘l-ol’.
The name of the compound is Prop + ane + (l – ol) = Propan-l-ol

Question 3.
How is ethanol manufactured from sugarcane?
Answer:
Ethanol is manufactured in industries by the fermentation of molasses, which is a by-product obtained during the manufacture of sugar from sugarcane. Molasses is a dark coloured syrupy liquid left after the crystallization of sugar from the concentrated sugarcane juice. Molasses contain about 30% of sucrose, which cannot be separated by crystallization. It is converted into ethanol by the following steps:
(i) Dilution of molasses : Molasses is first diluted with water to bring down the concentration of sugar to about 8 to 10 percent.

(ii) Addition of Nitrogen source : Molasses usually contains enough nitrogenous matter to act as food for yeast during the fermentation process. If the nitrogen content of the molasses is poor, it may be fortified by the addition of ammonium sulphate or ammonium phosphate.

(iii) Addition of YeastrThe solution obtained in step (ii) is collected in large ‘fermentation tanks’ and yeast is added to it. The mixture is kept at about 303K for a few days. During this period, the enzymes invertase and zymase present in yeast, bring about the conversion of sucrose into ethanol.

The fermented liquid is technically called wash.

(iv) Distillation of ‘Wash’: The fermented liquid (i.e., wash), containing 15 to 18 percent alcohol, is now subjected to fractional distillation. The main fraction drawn is an aqueous solution of ethanol which contains 95.5% of ethanol and 4.5% of water. This is called rectified spirit. This mixture is then refluxed over quicklime for about 5 to 6 hours and then allowed to stand for 12 hours. On distillation of this mixture, pure alcohol (100%) is obtained. This is called absolute alcohol.

Question 4.
Give the balanced chemical equation of the following reactions:
(i) Neutralization of NaOH with ethanoic acid.
Answer:

(ii) Evolution of carbon dioxide by the action of ethanoic acid with NaHCO3.
Answer:

(iii) Oxidation of ethanol by acidified potassium dichromate.
Answer:

(iv) Combustion of ethanol.
Answer:

Question 5.
Explain the mechanism of cleansing action of soap.
Answer:
A soap molecule contains two chemically distinct parts that interact differently with water. It has one polar end, which is a short head with a carboxylate group (-COONa) and one non – polar end having the long tail made of the hydrocarbon chain.

The polar end is hydrophilic (Water-loving) in nature and this end is attracted towards the water. The non – polar end is hydrophobic (Water hating) in nature and it is attracted towards dirt or oil on the cloth, but not attracted towards the water. Thus, the hydrophobic part of the soap molecule traps the dirt and the hydrophilic part makes the entire molecule soluble in water.

When soap or detergent is dissolved in water, the molecules join together as clusters called ‘micelles’. Their long hydrocarbon chains attach themselves to the oil and dirt. The dirt is thus surrounded by the non-polar end of the soap molecules. The charged carboxylate end of the soap molecules makes the micelles soluble in water. Thus, the dirt is washed away with the soap.

Question 5.
Explain the manufacture of soap.
Answer:
Manufacture of soap by Kettle Process This is the oldest method. But, it is still widely used in the small scale preparation of soap. There are mainly, two steps to be followed in this process.

1. Saponification of oil: The oil, which is used in this process, is taken in an iron tank (kettle). The alkaline solution (10%) is added into the kettle, a little in excess. The mixture is boiled by passing steam through it. The oil gets hydrolysed after several hours of boiling. This process is called Saponification.

2. Salting out of soap: Common salt is then added to the boiling mixture. Soap is finally precipitated in the tank. After several hours the soap rises to the top of the liquid as a ‘curdy mass’. The neat soap is taken off from the top. It is then allowed to cool down.
