Homework Help: Organic chemistry

Posted by TJ on Thursday, April 15, 2010 at 10:53am.

I know that sulfuric acid acts as a catalyst and removes water to help shift the equilibrium to form more productin an esterification. Can someone tell me if it is consumed?

My thought is no. If I am right, can someone tell me why it is not consumed. If wrong, still please explain. Thank you. :)
