Synthesis of esters reaction type: nucleophilic acyl substitution summary this reaction is also known as the fischer esterification esters are obtained by refluxing the parent carboxylic acid with the appropraite alcohol with an acid catalyst. This page describes ways of making esters in the lab from alcohols and phenols using carboxylic acids, synthesis of esters expand/collapse global location . Esters can be synthesized artificially in labs by combining alcohols and acids of different strengths this lab contained the synthesis of an ester by allowing different carboxylic acids to react with alcohols, using sulphuric acid as a catalyst, to create esters and allow the student to identify them by their distinct smell.

Synthesis of fragrant esters introduction: an ester is an organic compound that is formed when a carboxylic acid reacts with an alcohol in addition to an ester being form, water is another product of the reactions. View notes - ester preparation lab conclusion from chemistry ib chem hl at lincoln high school 10/30/11 investigating the preparation of esters discussion: the two esters synthesized were iso-amyl. For the synthesis of each ester, add 20 drops of the alcohol and 10 drops of the carboxylic acid (or enough solid on the end of a spatula that is about the size of a large match head) to a small, labeled test tube.
Laboratory, an ester is usually formed from the reaction of a carboxylic (organic) acid and an alcohol, giving an ester and water as the products this is an example of a condensation.
