Flashcards in Preparation of Esters Deck (14):
1

Esters characteristics king of reaction

pleasant smells

2

what kind of reaction

dehydration synthesis

3

dehydration synthesis

acid and alcohol, carboxylic acid + alcohol > ester + water

4

carboxylic acid

gives H

5

alcohol

gives OH

6

the difference with fisher esterification

carb gives OH and alc gives H

7

Ways to increase yield

remove water and add excess alcohol

8

hydrolysis

opposite of dehydration synthesis

9

catalyst of reaction

sulfuric acid

10

reactants

unpleasant smell

11

ALCOHOLS SMELL

medicniny

12

acetic acid

vinegar

13

salycilic acid

solid but when dissolved bitter

14

good smells

isopentyl alc + acetic acid = banana
ethyl alc + acetic = not good sweet
methyl alc +salycilic acid = mint
