Lab Report for “Synthesis of Benzoic Acid” Complete questions 1-6 in the experimental section of this laboratory procedure. 1) Write an equation which describes the reaction which has occurred. 2) What would the Grignard Reagent be converted into if water accidentally got into the flask? 3) How does the 1,2-dibromoethane serve to initiate the reaction of the magnesium with the bromobenzene? 4) Write an equation which describes what occurs when the phenylmagnesium bromide is added to the dry ice. 5) Using an equation, show what reaction occurs when the H 2 SO 4 is added to the carbonated reaction mixture. 6) Using a flow diagram, show what occurs in this washing/extraction procedure through the addition of the 6 M HCl. 7) Determine the percentage yield of benzoic acid. Include in your calculations a BALANCED EQUATION and the following information: a. number of moles of reactants used; b. the limiting reagent in the reaction; c. theoretical yield of benzoic acid obtainable d. the actual yield of benzoic acid obtained
