Predict and balance the following organic reactions.
1. Ethanol(ethyl alcohol) and methanoic acid(formic acid) are mixed and warmed.
2. Ethanoic acid is combined with propanol.

  • Chemistry - ,

    An organic acid is RCOOH (where R can be anything except a functional group).
    An alcohol is R'OH (where R' is anything except a functional group and the prime is used to show that it MAY be different than the first R).
    RCOOH + R'OH ==> RCOOR' + H2O
    Now all you need to do is fill in the R and R' groups. This is a general formula.
