What gases escaped during the sodium bicarbonate washing for the preparation of Synthetic Banana Oil lab. The isopentyl acetate, acetic acid, isopentyl alcohol, sulfuric acid, water , by-products goes through the sodium bicarbonate wash and the organic layer has the isopentyl acetate, isopentyl alcohol, traces of water, and by-products. The aqueous layer has the acetic acid and sulfuric acid as salts and water. I know that CO2 is released but what other gases are released.

  • Organic chem -

    CO2 is the only gas released. It is a product of both H2SO4 + Bicarb and Acetic Acid + Bicarb
