Phenols show a negative reaction for triidomethane test. However, when I did the experiment, phenol+iodine solution+ NaOH drop by drop + warm, I noticed that the brown colour of iodine solution was decolourised and a cloudy solution with orange droplets. The smell was that of like vinegar. This shows a negative iodoform test as no yellow precipitate was formed. Since the solution added was iodine solution and not an alkyl halide, what could the product be? I do not understand the mechanism behind the reaction. Could you please explain. Thank you.
When heated with of iodine phenol in the presence of caustic alkali sediment forms tetra-iodo-diphenylene-dioxide (C6H4I2O)2.
My feedback is below
I’m going, to be honest; I was very hesitant about trying out this service. I was years ago, but I backed out. This time I took a chance and put all my hope in their output of my assignment, especially with a good amount of money tied to it as well. The results were perfect. The code they wrote for my assignment worked flawlessly with comments that showed what each part did. Communication between my expert was excellent, all my questions were answered promptly. I will use them again after the quality of work I’ve received. For anyone hesitating, they will provide you excellent support and great quality with your assignment.
