- DEPARTMENT OF CHE]VTI STRY In the isolation procedure, most of the excess acetic acid and the unreacted isopentyl alcohol can be removed by extraction with water. Any remaining acid is removed by extraction with aqueous sod'irrm hicarhonate OTaHCC)r). The isopentyl acetate is then dried using sodium acetate. Set-up: The set-up for the experiment will be displayed in the lab, so no worries, the lab instructor will walk you through its assembly at the beginning of the lab. The set-up consists of a 5 mL conical vial, a magnetic spinvane, a reflux condenser, and a drying tube. Once put together, the set-up should be secured to a ring stand with a clamp. Experimental: Iqa 5 mL conical vial equipped with a spinvane, of )opentyl alcohol (already pre-weighed), foll After the reflux is completed allow the reaction to gool down, then remove the spinvane and add 2 mL of water. Stopper the conicaly)il, and shake it well. AA shaking
