To start off, we were given a crushed tabled of an unknown analgesic in a vial. ...read more.


We continued this process until we had added 5mL of the NaOH. After all pH measurements had taken place, we rinsed the beaker of its contents. Our analysis was to figure out what the unknown analgesic was. We had three different analgesic from which to choose. ...read more.


For the other two analgesics, the pH measurements varied distinctly for each one. Here is a simple chart showing the obvious consistency of the pH levels: As you can clearly see, the pH remained consistent throughout the experiment. Compare this chart to the other pH measurements of the other analgesics: Based on our data, the pH readings from the unknown substance match the pH reading from the aspirin. Sincerely, Zachary May ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.

  1. the synthesis of azo dyes, aspirin and soap

    soap, this shows that three water molecules will be released in the reaction. The Reaction Mechanism In this reaction, a mineral acid is needed to act as a catalyst for the reaction to lower its activation energy. This acid is combined with the carboxylic acid and helps the alcohol react with it.

    Task 2- Extraction and identification of the active chemical from willow bark In this practical we have to extract some salicylic acid from willow bark. We had to reflux it, which allows you to heat it for a long time period without losing any liquids.

  1. Making Aspirin.

    salicin is this active willow ingredient, and for many years it, salicylic acid (made from salicin for the first time by Italian chemist Piria), and close relatives were used at high doses to treat pain and swelling in diseases like arthritis and to treat fever in illnesses like influenza (flu).
