Sodium Bromide And 1-Butanol Lab Report

400 Words2 Pages
Sodium bromide and 1-butanol are dissolved in water since the bromide ion from the sodium bromide and the four carbon chain from the 1-butanol are the desired components of 1-bromobutane. In order to get the sodium bromide and the 1-butanol to react sulfuric acid is added to react with the sodium bromide and combine with the sodium ion producing hydro-bromic acid. Later, when the flask is heated the bromide ion will be able to combine with the four carbon chain of the 1-butanol. During the process of this reaction the reagents were kept cool in an ice bath to avoid the possible evaporation of any of the solution.
Distillation took place until no more drops of product were dripping from the distillation head. The first drop of distillate occurred
