About This Quiz and Worksheet

Using this quiz and worksheet combo, you can check how well you understand the chromic acid test used with aldehydes and alcohols. Questions ask you about something that would not react in the chromic acid test, and what happens in carbon-hydrogen bonds in the test.

Quiz and Worksheet Goals

Test your knowledge of the material with quiz questions on the following subjects:

  • The oxidation state of chromium in the Jones reactant before the test
  • New oxygen from an aldehyde transforming into a carboxylic acid
  • The carbon-hydrogen bonds in the test
  • What does and does not react in a chromic acid test

Skills Practiced

  • Defining key concepts - ensure that you can identify something that would not react in a chromic acid test
  • Knowledge application - use what you know to answer questions about oxygen when aldehyde becomes carboxylic acid
  • Information recall - remember what you have learned about oxygen when oxidizing secondary alcohols
