1) What is the role of the H2SO4 in reactions of esterification?... i have no idea how to approach this... i know that H2SO4 --> (esterifyied?) is sulfate.. but i dunno if that has anything to do with it
2) How is he -OH radical of an alcohol different from that of an inorganic compound (a base)?
Same deal here... (ok.. my teacher explained this, but im lost because i was absent when he did.. :I)
