Give an example ( please make it simple)
Reactions that produce acid anhydrides are dehydration reactions. For example: acetic acid (CH3COOH) forms acetic anhydride ((CH3CO)2O) and water by the dehydration reaction 2 CH3COOH → (CH3CO)2O + H2O Dehydration reactions are also involved in the production of many polymers.
