Calculations & chemical reactions can be hand written, but must be legible- 1 (30 pts) Given the below are two procedures for the synthesis of creatiner a. (18 pts) Identify and Ist three differences between the two experimental procedures, b. (12 pts] For each of the three differences identified, determine whether or not a green principle was applied, If a green principle was used please indicate what the principle is by its number as it is listed in "Green Chemistry Principles" handout Procedure 4: Cthanal To o solution of sarcosine (0 89 g, or 1 equivalent) in ethanol (5 mL) was added solid sodium chloride (0258 g or 1 equivalent). In another flask containing a solution of cyanamide (0.84 g or 2 equivalents) in distilled water (2 mi) was added concentrated (28%% (w/v)) ammonium hydroxide (2 mLJ. The two solutions were combined into a reaction vessel and stirred for 1 hour at 50"C. The product formed was then isolated by vacuum filtration with the waste (dicyanodiomide in concentrated ammonia solution) collected in the filtration flask. Procedure B: To a solution of sarcosine (0.89 g. or 1 equivalent) in distilled water (5 mL) was added a solution of cyanamide (0.42 g or 1 equivalent) in distilled water (2 ml). A portion of dilute (5% (w/v)) ammonium hydroxide (2 ml) was added to the mixture and then stirred ot room temperature overnight. The product formed was then isolated by vacuum filtration with the waste (dilute ammonium solution) collected in the filtration flask. 2. (20 pts) The chemical reaction for preparing creatine from sarocosine and cyanamide is a 1:1 molar ratio. Ammonium hydroxide is the reaction catalysis. Sarcosine (CsH,NOz) + cyanamide [CH,N2) > creatine (C.H;N302) Barney ran the above reaction and determined that he had a percent yield of 68.5%. Determine Barney's actual yield in grams, given that he started with 0.41 grams of cyanamide and 0.90 grams of sarcosine....
