Step 7:

This filtrate is called Lassaigne’s solution or sodium extract

Then divide the filtrate (Lassaigne’s solution ) into three parts to test the presence of N, S & halogens.

It is based upon the fact that when an organic compound containing nitrogen, sulphur and halogen is strongly heated with metallic sodium, its nitrogen converts to ionic NaCN (sodium cyanide), sulphur to ionic NaS (sodium sulphide) and halogen to ionic NaX (sodium halide) if they are present.
