Chung 2 Introduction The experimental objective of this lab was to perform chemical synthesis and isolate a reaction product. Chemical synthesis is the process of making a chemical compound by performing reactions that maximize the quantity and purity of a substance, isolating it by separating the desired chemical from all other components of the reaction mixture, and confirming that the substance is what was needed, and finding how much was made. 1 In this experiment, salicylic acid was reacted with acetic anhydride to make acetylsalicylic acid, commonly known as aspirin. Using titration, the amount of aspirin present in the sample was determined. Before titration was performed, it had to be confirmed whether or not the synthesized sample was aspirin or had impurities. The identity of aspirin was confirmed by determining its
