Homework Help: Organic chemistry

Posted by Anna on Wednesday, February 6, 2013 at 3:26am.

We conducted a diels-Alder reaction of cyclopentadiene with Maleic Anhydride experiment. Though I was wondering why we added ligroin to the maleic anhydride and ethyl acetate. I know ligroin can be used as a solvent, but I thought that ethyl acetate was the solvent in this experiment. I am a bit confused, would you please explain?
