In an esterification reaction, a carboxylic acid reacts with an alcohol to form an ester and water carboxylic acid + alcohol ester + water esters consist of two hydrocarbon chains, as labelled r-cooh (for the carboxyl group) and r'-oh (for the hydroxyl group) in this simulation esters are. Carboxylic acids the carboxyl functional group that characterizes the carboxylic acids is unusual in that it is composed of two functional groups described earlier in this text. 1 experiment 5 organic synthesis: fischer esterification 1 materials needed n-butyl alcohol, acetic acid, concentrated sulfuric acid saturated aqueous sodium carbonate (sat na. Experiment 7 synthesis of esters using acetic anhydride1 materials needed 20 ml of an alcohol to be chosen from the following: 1-propanol (n-propyl alcohol), 3-methyl-1-butanol.
Experiment #7: esterification pre-lab: 1 choose an ester to synthesize determine which alcohol and which carboxylic acid you will need to synthesize your ester. Preparation of esters reaction type: nucleophilic acyl substiution summary this reaction is also known as the fischer esterification. Abstract: the objective of this experiment is to efficiently perform a fischer esterification of 1-hexanol to form water and hexyl acetate, and to confirm.

The fischer esterification is an organic reaction used to convert a carboxylic acid and an alcohol to an ester using an acid catalyst the mechanism begins with protonation of the carbonyl group of the carboxylic acid, which is then attacked by the alcohol.
