Acetic Acid and Ink

cooking and can change the consistency of a liquid into more volatile. Vinegar is a liquid consisting mainly of acetic acid and water. The acetic acid is produced by the fermentation of ethanol by acetic acid bacteria. Acetic acid is an organic compound, it is colourless liquid that when undiluted is also called glacial acetic acid. Vinegar, naturally has many components like acetic acid and water. Even though it is composed of compounds, it is still environment friendly, and it is not a pollutant...

Chemistry Acetic Acid

Determining the Molarity of Acetic Acid in Vinegar Abstract This experiment was done to determine the molarity of acetic acid in vinegar. The acetic acid in vinegar was titrated with a strong base sodium hydroxide to determine the equivalence point of this chemical reaction. The indicator phenolphthalein was used because the moment it changes color is on the basic side of the pH scale. To insure the experiment was done with the most accuracy, the two conductors of this experiment took three...

Extraction of Benzoic Acid

to practice common organic laboratory techniques inside the lab to get one oriented to the basic methods of procedure that can be used for later experiments. This experiment involves the separation of benzoic acid from a more crude form, consisting of benzoic acid, methyl orange, a common acid/base indicator, and cellulose, a natural polymer of glucose (Huston, and Liu 17-24). The technique that is used to perform this separation is called extraction. Extraction is a systematic process of separating...

Isopentyl Acetate

Experiment 12: Isopentyl Acetate 19 October 2012 Introduction: The purpose of this experiment is to prepare isopentyl acetate by direct esterification of acetic acid with isopentyl alcohol. After refluxing there is an isolation procedure where excess acetic acid and remaining isopentyl alcohol are easily removed by extraction with sodium bicarbonate and water. The ester is then purified by simple distillation and the IR is then obtained. Techniques and equipment used throughout the experiment...

alcohol) and acetic acid. It is mostly found in oranges and other citrus products. Octyl acetate can be synthesized by a condensation reaction: C8H17OH + CH3COOH → C10H20O2 + H2O Uses Because of its fruity odor, octyl acetate is used as the basis for artificial flavors and in perfumery. It is also as a solvent for nitrocellulose, waxes, oils and some resins.
