    Quantitative determination of acetylsalicyclic acid

    Weigh accurately a definite number of aspirin tablets (two or three tablets weighing no more than 1.5 g) into a 250 cm3 conical flask. Initiate the hydrolysis of the aspirin by adding 25 cm3 of 1.0 M sodium hydroxide by pipette, diluting with approximately the same volume of distilled water. Warm the flask over a […] More

    Bromination of trans-cinnamic acid

    Abstract The bromination of trans-cinnamic acid was completed to determine dibromide’s stereochemical structure and its mechanism. After the addition of bromine to trans-cinnamic acid, the product was identified by its melting point and infrared spectrum resulting in erythro-2,3-Dibromo-3-phenylpropanoic acid after comparing similar properties. Introduction In this lab, the bromination of trans-cinnamic acid was completed to […] More
