Esterification
« on: November 22, 2019, 05:56:03 PM »
Hi, I was wondering,
what would happen if I mixed pure acetyl chloride with propan-1-ol?
I wanted to carry out esterification by myself and found out that the reaction with acid halides would be the most efficient and resulting in only HCl as the second product.
In books, I can only find theory and there are no sources available on the internet regarding e.g how to purify the mixture of the products or how to carry this reaction out from the practical point of view.

Wrong target - search in textbooks concerning practical organic chemistry
