Austin Meunier Che 111-007 Lauren Ison Partner: 3/9/11 Intro The whole goal of this experiment is to synthesize aspirin. Aspirin is the single most manufactured drug in the world. Aspirin is synthesized from the reaction of acetic anhydride with salicylic acid in the presence of phosphoric acid as a catalyst. In a chemical synthesis, of the reagents will be the limiting reagent, which is the reagent that is completely consumed in the reaction. For every reagent, you must calculate the mole quantities present, and calculate from the stoichiometry of the equation how many moles of product will form. The reagent that gives the least amount of product is the limiting agent. Also in this procedure we will be calculating the theoretical and percent yields of aspirin. When doing it, it is always baded on the limiting reagent, not the reagents that are in excess. For every reagent, you must calculate the mole quantities present, and calculate from the stoichiometry of the equation how many moles of product will form. In this lab, a vacuum pump or a water aspirator can generate suction. The aspirator is easy to use and
