10- Transfer the ester layer to a small dry test tube and dry the ester with anhydrous CaCl2 and stir for 10 min. 11- put it in a preweighed dry round bottom flask . 14- Determine the yield, refractive index, and % yield of ester. Conditions :- 1) This reaction is catalyzed by acid, Like Fischer esterification. 2) Usage of water in step (5):So that after Estrification is completed , any excess unreacted acetic anhydride is hydrolyzed.
In the second step, the addition of sodium borohydride reduced the imine into another derivative, which was yellowish lime color. The solution turned clear when acids and anhydrides was added, which indicated the precipitate were dissolved. However, after refluxing for a while, yellow precipitates begin to form near the top of the flask. It was assumed that the remaining starting material was concentrated from a decrease volume to reappeared in solution. Nevertheless, this may have been a sign of contamination that will negatively affect the entire reaction.
This experiment was to weigh the magnesium then wrap it with copper and to put it in a beaker with full of water in order to get the hydrogen gas. In the first trial the reaction happened real quick, this could be due to over using magnesium and it could have been improved by using less magnesium. But the rest two trials, they were pretty much ok. The figure shows that, ratio between H2 and Mg is 1:1 which means that there are equal molecules in both of them. Since the answer has to be four significant figure, the average molar mass of magnesium is 23.85
Formula 2: % Component= 100% component mass (g) sample mass (g) Procedure First, we measured out the evaporating dish to find the mass. Then we added around 3 grams of our sample (2.832g exactly). Next we added the isopropyl alcohol to dissolve the Benzoic Acid. We filled the evaporating dish, stirred, and then decanted the sample into a 140mL beaker with a stirring rod. This
Hence, a calcium chloride and cotton were filled inside a drying tube. The condenser was wrapped with parafilm and a paper towel to avoid moistures from entering. The reagent will act as nucleophilic addition to acetone and work up with hydrochloride acid to synthesize 2-methylhexanol. Throughout this process, the solution turns dark grey and develop white precipitates. This step indicate that Grignard reagent was generated, and the extra white precipitates were magnesium.
In this experiment, 293 mg of aldehyde was weighted for method 1 instead of 250 mg and. Although .7906 mg of phosphonium salt was added, this probably was not enough to complete the reaction. The only significant change throughout method was 1 was that the yellowish mixture became slightly lighter. However, it was found that after vacuum filtration, there was some white and yellow
When the aqueous layer was added to the vial, calcium chloride was then added to dry the solution. If the solution was dry enough, a large peak between 3300-3500 would have been present in the IR spectrum. In order to obtain the IR spectrum two Classification test were performed. The Bromine test and Permanganate test were used to determine if alkenes were indeed present in the solution. Both test were positive for the compound.
• Carefully decant the solvent solution from the drying agent through the funnel into the flask. Rinse the Erlenmeyer flask with about 10 ml of solvent and pour the solvent through the funnel, too. Remove the funnel, add two or three boiling chips and reattach the thermometer and adapter to the still pot. • Discard the magnesium sulfate remaining in the Erlenmeyer flask by dissolving it in tap water and pouring the solution down the drain. • Before beginning the distillation, weigh a clean, dry 1 narrow mouth screw cap bottle on a balance.
When it is added into an acidic solution, the solution will be colourless; when it is added into an alkaline solution, the solution will turn pink. Standard Sodium hydroxide solution is the alkaline solution that will be used to titrate with soda water as it is a common solution that can be easily found in an ordinary school laboratory. It is a strong base. Carbonic acid is a weak acid which will react with a strong base to form a basic (pH > 7) solution. When Phenolphthalein is added to Soda water, the resultant solution is colourless.
