The correct options are B
D on reduction with LiAlH4
will give Grain alcohol C
C on reduction with NaBH4
will give simplest secondary alcohol D
B on reduction with CH2N2/BF3
will give anisole
Reaction of benzene with propylene gives isopropylbenzene (A)
which is also known as cumeneocess. Cumene process converts (A)
into phenol (B)
and acetone (C)
Vapour Density of C given is 29. Hence, Molar Mass= 2×V.D.
Hence, C is Acetone with MM=58g/mol. (C)
upon haloform reaction generates acetic acid (D)
and chloroform (E),
which is an anesthetic.
gives Reimer Tiemann reaction to produce salicylaldehyde (F)
(b) Acetic acid (D) on reduction with LiAlH4
produces ethanol which is known as grain alcohol in its purest form.
(c) Acetone (C) on reduction with NaBH4
gives isopropyl alcohol which is simplest 2o
(d) Phenol (B) on reduction with CH2N2/BF3
produces anisole (Ph−O−CH3
