AgCl and AgBr cannot be distinguished by just dissolving in conc.NH3 as both of them dissolve in it. They can be
distinguished by addition of dilute ammonia.
The student acidified about 2 cm of a solution of A (FeCl2) with dilute nitric acid in a test tube and then added
a few drops of aqueous silver nitrate solution. A white precipitate was formed.
(i) Give the formula of the anion present in A. Cl ion is present.
(ii) The test in (i) is usually followed by the addition of ammonia solution to test the solubility of the precipitate.
Explain why this is not a useful procedure in this case.
The dissolving of white precipitate by concentrated ammonia is masked. Ammonia reacts with Fe to form iron(II)

[halogenoalkane alcohol] substitution attack +C of C Br
(Sn1 or Sn2)
- -
with OH dissolve CH3CH2Br + NaOH H2C=CH2 + NaBr + H2O Elimination OH acts as a base and
in ethanol [halogenoalkane alkene] accept H from CH3CH2Br

with CN CH3CH2Br + CN CH3CH2CN + Br Nucleophilic :CN acts as nucleophile
[halogenoalkane nitrile] substitution and attack +C of C Br

with aqueous CH3CH2Br + H2O + Ag CH3CH2OH + AgBr Fastest Ethanol is sometime added
silver nitrate H2O (in aqueous solution) is a weak nucleophile halogenoalkane to acts as solvent of

attack +C of C Br, forming alcohol. mixes better with AgNO3
C-I bond is solution. But rememeber

Br is released and form ppt with Ag . weaker than that the OH of the ethanol is
C-Br and C-Cl not the nucleophile.
