Synthesize a Variety of Esters by Reactions of Organic Acids and Alcohols
Introduces students to simple organic synthesis reactions
Allows students practice stoichiometry skills
Takes one 50 minute class period to complete
The reaction that is performed in this lab activity is commonly referred to as a Fischer esterification reaction. Esters are compounds that frequently have distinctive odors and are naturally occurring flavor and fragrance chemicals in many fruits and plants. In this lab, the smells of the esters produced will be investigated.
