So, if you have a molecule containing both an aniline and a phenol, what will the product be?

I am not sure what you are asking. If you are asking will a ester or amide be formed when this molecule react with acetic acid I would say ester since I think that the OH from the molecule is more likely to react.

Thanks

What happens when acetic acid is in excess?

I see now Dan! For some weird reason I thought it was 1 molecule of acetic acid: 2 molecule of X. If it was 1 molecule of X: 2 molecule of acetic acid then it creates this:

CC(=O)Nc2cc(OC(=O)C)ccc2

And the mass adds up.

Thank you very much for helping me Dan
