Title: What physical test and chemical test I can use to test isoamyl acetate?
Post by: _aachoi on May 12, 2021, 11:35:58 AM
I have isoamyl acetate as the product. Do any of you know what physical tests and chemical tests I can do to test this? One chemical test that I have researched is ferric hydroxamate test to test the presence of ester in the substance but I'm not quite sure if it's right. As for the physical test, I still have no idea.  :( :( :(

Simple physical test is to measure ir spectrum of product and compare it to the one here: https://sdbs.db.aist.go.jp/sdbs/cgi-bin/direct_frame_top.cgi

Sample of product should be purified before testing !

@OP,
What are some characteristic physical properties of compounds that you probably measured and/or looked up in tables during your class?
