Purpose: In this experiment, an aspirin acetic anhydride and salicylic acid aspirin will be tested to determine if the salicylic aspirin matches known qualities of commercial aspirin based off of melting point, existing intermolecular bonds, and its reaction with ferric ions. Aspirin is a common medicine often used as a pain reliever or even a fever reducer. Although this product can be very useful, negative side effects could occur during the digestion process unless the correct solution exists to resist the change in PH. Three different experiments will be conducted to determine how closely the aspirin prepared in Part A matches the qualities of commercial aspirin. In Part B, the melting point of the aspirin will be determined. Part C consists of predicting how pure the aspirin is by combining it with ferric acid. In part D, the different types of intermolecular forces the aspirin

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
