Fehling's Test?

Answer

Fehling's test is a chemical test to detect reducing sugars and aldehydes in a solution. The presence of the aldehyde group is identified by heating the substance with Fehling's solution whereby a brick-red precipitate is formed. Simple sugar such as glucose gives a positive result.
