Xue Dong chem.12a lab 01 Lab partener: Patrick keenan, Shayon Shahbazi SYNTHESIS OF ASPIRIN Date analysis Initial weight of salicylic acid is 0.025g The molecule mass of aspirin is 180.16g/mol Moles of a molecule=mass of substance / molar mass Mass of a substance =Moles of a substance * Molar mass 180.16g/mol*0.016mol=0.288g aspirin The percentage yield for this synthesis of aspirin can be calculated as follow Maximum yield=0.288g Actual yield=0.1158g Percentage yield= Actual yield./Maximum yield=40.21% Final produce Maximum yield =0.288g Actual yield=0.0377g Percentage yield=actual yield/maximum yield=86.9%% Crude product Average of actual melting range=136 Expected melting point=139c Percentage error=-2.15% Final product Average of actual melting range=136 Expected melting pointu 147.3c Percentage error=u 7.48% Data analysis The first line shows how much acetylsalicylic acid was used. Since there is a 1;1 ratio between the salicylic acid and aspirin, the theoretical yield of aspirin could be calculated that for 0.225 gram acetylsalicylic acid, 0.288 gram aspirin should be produce.

    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.
