When RNA is hydrolysed, there is no relationship among the quantities of different bases obtained, this fact suggests that RNA is a single strand structure. Unlike DNA which is a double strand structure in which pairing of bases occurs (for e.g. adenine pairs with thymine). Thus, on hydrolysis, the amount of adenine produced will be the same as the amount produced by thymine. In RNA there is no...
When a nucleotide from the DNA containing thymine is hydrolyzed, the products are thymine β-D-2-deoxyribose and phosphoric acid. 
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin which is excreted from the body in the form of urine and cannot be stored. So they must be supplied in the diet regularly.
Due to denaturation of proteins, globules unfold and helix gets uncoiled which changes its biological activity. In denaturation, secondary and tertiary structures are destroyed whereas primary structure remains the same. Due to this process (denaturation of proteins) coagulation of egg take place while boiling. In egg, the globular protein changes into a rubber-like structure which is...
Amino acids have both acidic and basic group(amine) which lead to the formation of zwitterions and make them dipolar compounds. Due to this property, they form strong molecular bonds themselves and also with water. This result high melting point and good solubility in water as compared to haloacids. Halo acids doesn't exhibit the property of dipolar compounds. Only carboxyl group of haloacid is...
When pentaacetate of glucose is made to react with hydroxylamine, it does not react indicating the absence of free —CHO group. In aqueous solution, the cyclic structure (have -OH group at C-1 ) should get converted to open chain structure which has an aldehyde group at C-1. It then should react with hydroxylamine and give glucose oxime. But such case is not observed. This suggests that in...
The expected product in the hydrolysis of lactose is Galactose and Glucose.         
We know that water is a polar molecule. It is also known that "like dissolves like". So either polar molecule or the compounds which can form hydrogen bonds with water molecules will get dissolved in water. Glucose and sucrose have five and eight -OH groups respectively. So they are likely to form hydrogen bonds with molecules with water. In the case of cyclohexane and benzene, these are...
(ii) is appropriate because   is nucleophile whereas is also a strong base. So elimination will be dominating in (i).
1.Reaction of ethanol with hydrogen bromide. 2. Reaction of 3-methylpentan-2-ol with sodium 3. Reaction of product formed in 1st and reaction with the product formed in the 2nd reaction.
Dehydration of 1-methylcyclohexanol 1-Methylcyclohexene is the major product.
