Question about 2,4-DNPH test

  1. Nov 4, 2013 #1
    Hey all,

    The other day in O-Chem lab I tested trans-p-anisalacetophenone with the 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine test. I did not get the positive result that I expected. Is there any way someone could help me rationalize this? Would it have to do with the aromatic group in my compound? Did I screw up in isolating the product? Should I have theoretically gotten a positive result?

    thanks for your help
