(Must be completed and checked at the beginning of Lab) 1) Write your procedure that you will follow for today’s lab (correct amounts must be included) Reagents anthracene (97mg, .05mmols) and maleic anhydride ( 53mg, .05 mmols) were added to a conical vial. 1 ml of xylene solvent and a spin vane were then added to mixture. The mixture was heated to reflux using a water-jacketed condenser and an aluminum block for 30- minutes. The mixture was then allowed to cool. The crystallized product was then isolated through vacuum filtration and washed with xylene. The product was placed on a watch glass to dry in an oven. 2) Theoretically, there are a few products you could propose for the diels-alder reaction between maleic

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
