Final MASS is :0.85g. Melting point is, start: 150.8 degrees and end: 153.8 degrees
1.Write a formal procedure for this experiment based on what you did in the lab
Passive past tense, complete sentences
Do not use “I” or “we”
This should not be a step-by-step procedure. Assume the reader is familiar with basic lab techniques
2.Calculate the theoretical and percent yield for this reaction. You need to show your calculations to get full credit.
3.Discuss your yield for this reaction
Do not just restate the yield. discuss if it is high or low, why you came to that conclusion, and what could have caused it, and possibly how to fix it if you were to repeat this experiment
4.Discuss your melting point for this reaction
Do not just restate the melting point. Explain what it means for the purity of the product you obtained.
5.Determine peaks that should be present in the IR of the product. Discuss the IR that was obtained.
6.list the bonds you expect to see (in the diagnostic region)
provide the exact peak numbers in the IR that correspond to the bonds you are looking for
What differences would you expect to see in the IRs of methyl salicylate and salicylic acid?
7.Explain why the sulfuric acid was necessary in this reaction. What would you have isolated if you hadn’t used it (or any acid)?
8.What happened to the CH3 group that was on the starting ester? Refer to the mechanism to help your explanation
Place an order in 3 easy steps. Takes less than 5 mins.
