    Making Aspirin

    5 star(s)

    Step 2: Now I am going to calculate the theoretical mass of aspirin from its moles. We know that mole = (mass / relative molecular mass). The relative mass of 2-ethanoyloxybenzoic acid (C9H8O4) = (12 x 9 + 1 x 8 + 16 x 4)

  2. Synthesis of Aspirin

    * 2 cm3 of distilled water was added into the conical flask carefully. This procedure was performed in the fume cupboard as well. There may be a fairly vigorous reaction occurred but it didn't have any in this experiment. * 40 cm3 of water was used to rinse out the boiling tube.

    Chemist then began work on making Salicylic acid or 2-hydroxybenzoic acid artificially. The first thing chemist do is to find a well known, abundant molecule that has a similar structure to Salicylic acid that can be modified. The answer... Phenol.

  2. the analysis of aspirin tablet

    Standard sulphuric acid was run out from the burette to the solution inside the conical flask until the solution change from purple to yellow. 8) The final reading on the burette was recorded. 9) Titrations were repeated until the normal degree of consistency is obtained.

    Condensation polymers are those formed from monomers with the removal of water. The formation of proteins from amino acid monomers is a condensation polymer reaction. ...-COOH + H2N-... � protein + H2O Another example is when two glucose monomer molecules react through two hydroxy groups -OH, an H-OH molecule is condensed out, leaving an -O- linking the two monomer molecules.
