View the step-by-step solution to:



1.The solubility of acetanilide in your recrystallizing

solvent is 5.0 mg/mL @ 10°C. (a.) Calculate the maximum % recovery in this experiment, assuming a 15.0-mL recrystallizing solution is filtered at 10°C.

 b)Calculate the % recovery of the acetanilide produced in your experiment. 

 c)How do your results compare to the maximum % recovery? Briefly explain. 

2.Write the chemical equation and a rational mechanism for the formation of acetanilide from the reaction of aniline with acetic anhydride.

3.As mentioned earlier, the hydrolysis of acetic anhydride is a competing reaction. Write the chemical equation and a rational mechanism for this reaction.

4.Aniline is basic, and acetanilide is not basic. Explain why.

an Amount of acetamidide retained by
15 ml of solvent = 15x85 my = 75 mg
Amount of acetamilide that cambe recovered
from 0.5029 of Crude = 01502- 0.075 = 427ng
So recovery = 427 x100 = 85#%
