why was an excess of acetic acid used in this synthesis?
Explain why it is possible to separate n-butyl acetate from excess and unreacted acetic acid and n-butyl alcohol?
Write equation to show how anhydrous MgSO4 behaves as a drying agent.Give Product
1. Adding more acetic acid can drive the reaction forward, in other words it enhances the rate of the reaction
2. It is possible because they can be extracted with water using separatory funnel.
3. MgSO4 + 7H2O → MgSO4•7H2O
