The molecular formula of X is
An unknown organic compound X has a relative molecular mass of 180. It is a colourless crystalline solid, readily soluble in water. X contains the element C, H, and O in the atomic ratio 1:2:1. The compound has a sweet taste and melts on heating. In the presence of yeast and in the absence of air X is converted to compound Y in the absence of air, X is converted to compound Y and colourless gas. Compound Y reacts with sodium metal to produce a gas Z which gives a €˜pop€™ sound with a glowing splint. Y also reacts with ethanoic acid to give a sweet smelling compound W.
