Introduction Physical properties of aldehydes and ketones possesses such as the boiling point, melting point, normal boiling-point range, refractive index, density or specific gravity or solubility parameter can all be manipulated to determine an aldehyde or ketone. The components of the physical properties are useful in chemistry to determine several backgrounds. The electronegativity which is a component of the physical properties can make differentiate two elements like Aldehyde and Ketones. Information about Aldehyde and Ketones Aldehydes and ketones are combinations that prevent a carbonyl group, and therefore, these combinations are collectively cried carbonyl combinations. There is a dual bond between ... Read More

Introduction Carboxylic acids are prepared when the chloride of acid is hydrolyzed with a water base. This chloride is acid when reacted with the base they produce carboxylic acid, which can be acidified again through laboratory processes. On hydroxylation of acid anhydrides, R-COOH is formed artificially. Carboxylic acids are generally made up of 2 electronegative oxygen atoms that make the molecules of the acid polar. What is a Carboxylic Acid? The organic compound that has a carboxyl functional group is referred to as carboxylic acid. These compounds can be freely found in the environment and can be synthesised artificially ... Read More

Introduction Acetone stands for a compound that is organic in form and the chemical identity of this compound is $\mathrm{C_3H_6O}$. This application of this element is mainly seen as an additive for removing nail polish. It is dissolved in paint and it is mostly used for starting up of diesel engines. What is Acetone? Acetone refers to the smallest as well as simplest members of the family of ketone and it is also called as propanone. No specific colour is seen in this liquid, the characteristics of this compound are a little volatile, and it is highly flammable. A wide ... Read More
