Unformatted text preview: The removal of water joins the two molecules together in the form of an ester bond Alcohol + organic acid Ester + water Br 2 H 2 Practice: Classify the reaction. Draw the reactants. Predict the products of the reaction. 1. 2-pentene + chlorine 2. butanoic acid + methanol 3. methane + fluorine Conclusions Organic reactions occur more slowly due to the nature of the bonds (covalent) Addition reactions require an unsaturated hydrocarbon Substitution reactions occur most readily with halogens and alkanes Esterification produces an ester from an alcohol and an organic acid...
