You cannot use iodoform test for differentiating 3-pentanone and methyl ethanoate because both will not respond to iodoform test. iodoform test for esters is the test given by its products on hydrolysis.methyl ethanoate gives methanol and ethanoic acid ,fuirther methanol on oxidation gives formaldehyde, so methyl ethanotae doesnt respond to iodoform test. 3-pentanone does not have CH3 (Methyl) group,so obviously it will not giveiodoform test .
