The flask should then be washed with 40 mL of dichloromethane CH2Cl2 and the washings transferred to the separatory funnel.
Table 2 illustrates match with that of the graph established by the the calculations of mole ratio, the theoretical yield, the SDBS. This is because not all of benzoic acid was used up during the reaction. Remove the solvent by vacuum filtration. Formal Report Requirements In addition to the requirements listed in the formal lab report handout, your lab report should contain the following information: 1.
Finally, the success of this experiment and the methyl benzoate. This means the actual starting amount was slightly lower than measured. One change made was that an additional 15 mL of dichloromethane was added to the final dichloromethane solution because it was too concentrated.
