Identification Of Carbon Monoxide"
Carbon monoxide, with the chemical formula CO, is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas. It is the product of the partial combustion of carbon-containing compounds. It consists of one carbon atom covalently bonded to one oxygen atom. There are 2 covalent bond and a dative covalent bond between the oxygen and carbon atom which comes from the oxygen .
It results from incomplete oxidation of carbon in combustion. Burns with a violet flame. Slightly soluble in water; soluble in alcohol and benzene.
