Describe how you would carry out a lab test to compare the reactivity of liquid 1-heptene and liquid heptane. State clearly what the possible results of the test are and what they would indicate.
Would you carry out the lab test using bromine? Add about 1 mL (about twenty drops) of 1-heptene to one container and about 1 mL of heptane to the other container.
Add an equal volume of bromine water to each of the liquids then shake each container to the same extent.
Leave the containers to settle, then observe.
Would this process work for heptane and 1-heptene? Would the colour of the solution change?
