P9 Fatty Ethanolamides
P9 - Fatty Ethanolamides
This report explains how to produce fatty ethanolamide (lauric ethanolamine) by reacting 56g (55cm3) of 2-aminoethanol with 175g of lauric acid. It contains the aim, experimental plan and the actual method used. The results are shown as well as conclusion drawn up. Recommendations are made to improve the procedure.
The aim of the experiment is to produce fatty ethanolamide (lauric ethanolamine) by reacting 56g (55cm3) of 2-aminoethanol with 175g of lauric acid. The percentage yield will be calculated then the melting point will be measured.
This report helps readers to understand how to produce fatty ethanolamide (lauric ethanolamine) safely and to then work out the percentage yield and measure the temperature.
Ethanolamine (C2H7NO), also called 2-aminoethanol or monoethanolamine (often abbreviated as MEA), is an organic chemical compound which is both a primary amine (due to an amino group in its molecule) and a primary alcohol (due to a hydroxyl group). Like other amines, monoethanolamine acts as a weak base. Ethanolamine is a toxic, flammable, corrosive, colorless, viscous liquid with an odour similar to
