I had to miss a lab yesterday. Do you know of a website where I can virtually prepare methyl salicylate (oil of wintergreen)? The experiment involves salicylic acid + methyl alcohol + concentrated sulfuric acid + heat....then when two layers form collect the top layer and estimate the % yield.
Anything even close out there?
Thanks.
