I. Pre-Lab Report A. Introduction The purpose of this experiment is to convert aniline to 1-bromo-3-chloro-5-iodobenzene via a six step synthesis reaction that for the most part involves electrophillic aromatic substitution. First, aniline will be converted to acetanilide using acetic anhydride. Next, . . .

I. Pre-Lab Report A. Introduction The purpose of this experiment is to convert benzoic acid to methyl benzoate via an acid catalyzed reaction with methanol. The reaction will be prepared by Fischer esterification, which involves the reaction reaching equilibrium after refluxing for a few hours. The purity . . .
I. Pre-Lab Report A. Introduction The purpose of this experiment is to investigate the influence of molecular structure on the reactivity of an alkane in free-radical chlorination using gas chromatography. The alkene to be used, 1-chlorobutane, will be reacted with sulfuryl chloride to produce four . . .
I. Pre-Lab Report A. Introduction The purpose of this experiment is to analyze the products of the dehydration of 2-methylcyclohexanol using gas chromatography. Dehydration of the 2-methylcyclohexanol will take place via distillation with sulfuric acid on a microscale level to yield 1-methylcyclohexene . . .
