Sulfuric acid acts as a catalyst in esterification.
to act as a catalyst in the reaction
You can use 85% phosphoric acid, or concentrated sulfuric acid. It depends on your method, but either works.
No. Even concentrated hydrochloric acid contains much water. Concentrated sulfuric acid, which can be completely anhydrous, is much more effective as dehydrating agent.
Concentrated sulfuric acid has 98 % H2SO4.
NIitration on the meta- position of benzoic acid will happen.
The chemical reaction (a dehydration reaction) is: C12H22O11 + H2SO4 = 12 C + 11 H2O
Yes, concentrated sulfuric acid is a liquid.
The chemical equation is: CH3COOH + C2H5OH ↔ CH3COOCH2CH3 + H2O Concentrated sulfuric acid act as a catalyst.
Ethanol is either formed from a dehydration reaction of ethene and water catalyzed with concentrated sulfuric acid. Or as a waste product of yeast.
By diluting the concentrated sulphuric acid accordingly.
By diluting the concentrated sulphuric acid with distilled water.
Sulfuric acid acts as a catalyst and dehydrant. It is also serves as a source of protons during the esterification of salicylic acid with acetic anhydride.
the widely used catalyst is V2O5 .
