Analysis of Mixtures of Alcohols by Acylation

One of 130 reports in the series: Ames Laboratory, Iowa State University (IS) available on this site.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

From abstract: "Recently a general chemical method for the analysis of mixtures of alcohols appeared, using pyridine catalyzed acetylation and second order kinetics to determine the amount of the faster reacting component. The use of 0.25M isobutyric anhydride in pyridine containing 0.0025M perchloric acid as catalyst promotes the rate of the reaction and diminishes the time necessary to perform an analysis. A mathematical treatment of the data and kinetic plot reduces the number of kinetic points to only four or five. The mixtures are primarily composed of isomers."
