Chem 358 Spring 2007 Problem Set #7 Text Problems Chapter 20 : 20 .24(a), (c), (e), (f), 25, 28(c), (d), (g), 29, 31, 36(a), (c), (d), (e), (f), 37, 44, 45, 46, 48, 49, 50, 51 Additional Problems 1. (a) Write a mechanism for the esterification of acetic acid with 18 O-labeled ethanol. Show clearly the fate of the 18 O label. (b) Acid-catalyzed hydrolysis of an unlabeled ethyl propionate with 18 O-labeled water (H 2 18 O) leads to incorporation of some 18 O into both oxygen atoms of the propionic acid obtained.
