  • Banana Oil Synthesis

    aMicroscale Synthesis of Isopentyl Acetate (Banana Oil) Objective: Carried out the microscale synthesis of isopentyl acetate by direct esterification of acetic acid and isopentyl alcohol. This was an acid catalyzed Fischer esterification. Both extraction and distillation were employed to obtain a pure product. IR spectroscopy and gas chromatography were used to determine purity of the final product. Reagents: * Compound: | * MW (g/mol): | * MP (°C): | * BP (°C): | * Density (g/mL):...

    then distilled using a standard simple distillation apparatus. The percent yield of isopentyl acetate was 60.39%. This may have been low due to incomplete distillation or evaporation once entering the receiving flask. The product had a distinct “banana oil” smell, making the reaction successful. Introduction The purpose of this experiment is to synthesize isopentyl acetate (3-methylbutly acetate) via Fischer Esterification. The acetate is isolated using reflux distillation. Reflux involves...

    Preparation of Synthetic Banana Oil Introduction: In this lab the synthesis, purification, and characterization of isoamyl acetate, or banana oil, was determined. The synthesis was completed by a reversible esterification reaction which required the heating of glacial acetic acid and isoamyl alcohol, combined with a sulfuric acid catalyst in hexane. In order to increase the efficiency of the reaction, LeChatelier’s Principle is utilized by removing water from the products. As a result, the reaction...

Salicylic acid is a white crystalline compound that can be isolated from the bark of birch trees. Since it is a valuable substance that can be isolated from nature, it is called...

  • Esterification - Synthesis of Methyl Benzoate

    industrial settings due to the simplified synthesis and safety parameters of the overall reaction. Both benzoic acid and methanol are relatively cheap to obtain from a commercial source as well as being easy to store with a relatively long shelf life. The Fischer esterification method is a fundamental and important synthesis process in training our future chemists in both commercial and academic employment and principles. By utilizing this method of synthesis, the chemist has the knowledge to utilize...

  • Milikan Oil Drop Experiment

    Milikan Oil Drop Experiment Objective To experimentally determine the quantum nature of charge by using the equipment especially designed for this experiment. Theory A spherical drop of oil, falling through a viscous medium like air, will quickly reach a constant velocity. When it reaches this equilibrium state, the viscous force is balanced by other forces acting on the drop, such as gravity, buoyant forces from the air, electrical forces, etc. In this experiment an electrical force of varying...

  • Banana Fish

    easily sees the imaginary bananafish that Seymour tells her about and is therefore able to “see” Seymour in a way the adults in his life cannot. Symbols Bananafish Bananafish, the imaginary creatures that gorge themselves on bananas and then die of banana fever, represent Seymour and his struggles to reengage with society after returning from the war. Seymour, an outsider in a world that seems to be guided by materialism, greed, and pettiness, has no real outlet for the complicated emotions...

  • Protein Synthesis

    living creatures, work together in a certain process that is crucial to existence: the formation of proteins. Although all species differ from each other in various ways, the processes by which proteins are synthesized are the same in all. Protein synthesis is a very complex process. In order to understand the process, there some basics that are essential for cells to create the proper proteins. DNA is a very long and double-stranded molecule that contains coding, through four nitrogen bases (adenine...
