Synthesis of aspirin extracts from this document introduction aim in the first part of the experiment was to synthesize quality of aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) and in the second part of the lab, the tcl plate was performed to confirm the identity of the aspirin and to detect any impurities. Synthesis and analysis of aspirin 3 add 50 ml of acetic anhydride and 5 drops of 85% phosphoric acid swirl the mixture if necessary, use a sparingly small amount of distilled water to rinse down. A student researched lab experiment about the synthesis of aspirin. Synthesis of aspirin abstract: the purpose of this lab is to synthesise acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin) by creating a reaction between acetic anhydride and salicylic acid this was be accomplished through the use of recrystallization.
The key compound in the synthesis of aspirin, salicylic acid, is prepared from phenol by a process discovered over 100 years ago by the german chemist hermann kolbe. Aspirin is salicylic ester of acetic acid and can be prepared by reaction of salicylic acid with acetic acid catalyzed by acid however this reaction is reversible one and after attaining equilibrium may reverse leading to hydrolysis of ester as shown in figure below. Preparation of acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin) background the chemicals used to synthesize aspirin present a health hazard and exposure should be kept to a. Esterification occurs when a carboxylic acid and an alcohol combine in a reaction to produce an ester this reaction can be used to synthesize aspirin from salicylic acid in the lab, the carboxylic acid alcohol mixture is heated in the presence of h2po4, phosphoric acid, which acts as a catalyst.
The history of aspirin other academic chemists established the compound's chemical structure and devised more efficient methods of synthesis in 1897. For the synthesis of aspirin, how do you calculate the percent yield if the reaction produces 470 grams of aspirin the reaction, using molecular formulas is c7h6o3 + c4h6o3 -- c9h8o4 + c2h4o2 the relevant molecular weights are 180 grams per mole for aspirin, and 138 grams per mole for salicylic acid. The synthesis of aspirin is classified as an esterification reaction salicylic acid is treated with acetic anhydride, an acid derivative, causing a chemical reaction that turns salicylic acid's hydroxyl group into an ester group (r-oh â†’ r-ococh3).
Part of ncssm core collection: this video shows the synthesis of aspirin please attribute this work as being created by the north c. Preparing esters from an alcohol and a carboxylic acid using an acid as catalyst is one of the most useful reactions in an organic chemists toolbox in this experiment, you will prepare aspirin from salicylic acid and acetic anhydride using sulfuric acid as a catalyst. Aspirin, also known as acetylsalicylic acid, dates back to 1897, when it was isolated by felix hoffmann, a chemist with a german company bayer aspirin is. The goal of this experiment was to synthesize aspirin in this experiment aspirin, also known as acetylsalicylic acid, was synthesized from salicylic acid and acetic anhydride in the reaction the hydroxyl group on the benzene ring in salicylic acid reacted with acetic anhydride to form an ester functional group.
Synthesis of aspirin synthesis purification characterization aspirin: some background patented by bayer in 1893 one of the oldest drugs one of the most consumed drugs (production in the us is 10 million kg/year) aspirin: biological activity analgesic (painkiller) antipyretic (fever reducer) anti-inflammatory (inhibition of the synthesis of.
