  • Preparation Of Synthetic Banana Oil

    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...
