College Level Classic General Chemistry Experiment Students perform a quantitative esterification reaction to produce ethyl acetate. The lab consists of three parts—in Part 1, ethyl acetate is prepared; in Part 2, the ethyl acetate is purified; and in Part 3, tests are performed to verify the identity of the ethyl acetate. The theoretical yield is then calculated and the percent yield is determined. Students receive hands-on experience with common organic chemistry techniques, such as refluxing, extractions and distillation.
Complete for 24 students working in pairs.
