How to Prepare Chemistry for VITEEE 2017?

Last Updated - April 06, 2017

Preparing for VIT is not a matter of joke, and requires healthy concern and a lot of hard labor. Hence one requires getting some good quality of books which are not only full of the required knowledge, but is also capable of giving the students the extra confidence that they require. The candidates must be preparing rigorously for the exam now and we hope that the preparation is being done as per the Chemistry syllabus of VITEEE.

VITEEE 2017 will be conducted from April 05, to April 16, 2017. The exam will be held in 3 sessions per day (Shift 1 – 9 am to 11:30 am, Shift 2 – 12:30 pm to 3 pm, Shift 3 – 4 pm to 6:30 pm). The Result of an examination will be declared on or before April 24, 2017.

VIT entrance exam examines candidates on their speed and analytical abilities. Moreover, since there is no negative marking, so the aspirants should try to cover maximum amount of syllabus without going into going much into the intricacies. 

For the candidates appearing for the examination, the University has released the VITEEE syllabus, for Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics/Biology, and English subjects. Candidates can find below a list of important topics to be prepared in Chemistry section, along with a VITEEE exam pattern.

VITEEE 2017 Chemistry Preparation Plan

NCERT is best suited for the preparation of Inorganic Chemistry. Focus particularly on areas like Atomic Structure, Electrochemistry, Biomolecules, Organic Nitrogen Compounds, Alcohols and Ethers.

Let us discuss how exactly you should plan out your preparation so as to achieve your cherished goal-

Proper analysis of the exam: Before commencing your preparation, identify what exactly is asked in the exam, what it focuses on and what exactly is the pattern. VITEEE asks objective type questions which are application based and test thinking abilities.  

Emphasize on clearing basics: VIT entrance exam covers the syllabus of State Board of Higher Secondary School along with the CBSE syllabus. Thus, first cover the entire syllabus of the NCERTs as they help in laying good foundation. Once you have completed these books, you can then refer other books.

Identify the topics which are most important: One cannot dare to be selective in his studies while planning to take an elite exam like VITEEE. However, you can just identify the most important sections so that you can work harder on those areas.

VITEEE 2017 Chemistry Important Topics

Following are the Most Important Topics of chemistry that VITEEE aspirants must prepare thoroughly.

VITEEE Chemistry Preparation

In chemistry, 40 questions will be asked in VITEEE exam 2017. Candidates can find below a list of in-depth information regarding VITEEE Syllabus for Chemistry exam. The standard of question that is asked in VIT does require healthy and sound knowledge in the subject. The concept and the in-depth knowledge should be clear and for that one requires good books. Few are the important points under each topic is discussed below, which can help one in preparing for the VITEEE in great deal are as follows:

Chemistry Most Important Topics

Alcohols and Ethers

a. Common reducing agents are: LiA1H4; NaBH4; hydrogen in the presence of Ni or Pt or Pd; Na and ethanol.

b. NaBH4 is a mild reducing agent and cannot reduce carboxylic acid and their esters.

c. Fermentation takes place under anaerobic conditions

d. Favorable conditions for fermentation are-

  1. Optimum temperature of 298 to 303 K
  2. Absence of air
  3. Low concentration of solution
  4. Presence of ammonium salts like (NH4)2 SO4, (NH4)3 PO4 but not NH4 C1

e. Phenols although colorless turn reddish due to atmospheric oxidation.

Carbonyl Compounds

a. Distinction between Aldehydes and Ketones: Aldehydes show the following characteristics tests. Ketones do not show these tests – Tollens Test, Fehling’s Test, Schiff’s Test

b. Grignard reagent reacts both with acetaldehyde and acetone.

c. A compound containing the carbon-carbon and carbon-oxygen double bonds in conjugation is known as alpha-beta unsaturated carbonyl compound.

d. Oxidation of primary alcohols & Oxidation of secondary alcohols-

VITEEE Chemistry Preparation

Carboxylic Acid and its Derivatives

a. Important concepts-

  • Conversion to Acid Chlorides
  • Conversion to Esters
  • Reduction of Acids to Alcohol
  • Halogenation of Aliphatic Acids
  • Decarboxylation
  • Functional Derivatives - Acid Chlorides
  • Functional Derivatives - Acid Anhydrides
  • Functional Derivatives - Amides
  • Functional Derivatives – Esters

b. The sequence of dicarboxylic acids is Oxalic, Malonic, Succinic, Glutaric, Adipic, Pimelic

VITEEE Chemistry Preparation

Organic Nitrogen Compounds

a. Methods of preparation of Amines are: Reduction of nitro compounds, reaction of halides with ammonia, Hofmann degradation of amides, reduction of nitriles and amides.

b. Test for primary Amine (Carbylamines reaction) the treatment of a primary amine with chloroform and alcoholic potash produces carbylamines (isocyanides) which has most offensive smell. This test is not exhibited by secondary and tertiary amines.

c. In gaseous phase, the order of basicity is R3N >R2NH > RNH2 > NH3

d. Test for Secondary Amine is Liebermann reaction
