Does DNA give positive tests for:

  • Amides (using Hinsberg , isocarbonyl or any such test)
  • Alcohols
  • Phosphates (using the Ammonium Molybdate test)?

I will be extracting DNA from fruits and putting them under these tests.

Hi Siddhartha, can you fill in what your own hypotheses would be and then someone can confirm them for you? –  jonsca Dec 25 '12 at 0:08
I do believe they should react to the test as DNA's do have a phosphate , alcoholic and amide group..but i cant be sure that it will give these tests.. for DNA might protect/or these groups might not react –  Siddhartha Sinha Dec 25 '12 at 17:10
