How do carboxylic acids and esters differ in chemical structure?
Check all that may apply.
Esters have a hydroxyl group.
Esters have a carboxyl group.
Esters have a carboxyl group and hydrogen linkage off the alpha carbon.
Esters have a carboxyl group and ether linkage off the alpha carbon.
How do carboxylic acids and esters differ in odor? Check all that apply. Esters smell sweeter, often fruity. Carboxylic acids have often not very pleasant smelling. Carboxylic acids smell sweeter, often fruity. Esters have often
These are my answers but i want to know if i have the correct ones. There is only one best answer. A. 2,2-dimethyl butane B. Cyclohexane C. cis-2-pentene D. table salt E. acetylene Axial/ equitorial hydrogents- B triple bond- C
REACTION 1 IS A CARBON COMPOUND CONTAINING AN ALCOHOL FUNCTION GROUP + REACTION 2 IS A CARBON COMPOUND CONTAINING A CARBOXYLIC GROUP. IM TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THE PRODUCT FORMULAE. CAN YOU TELL ME HOW THESE TWO FUNCTION GROUPS
which alcohol and carboxylic acid would produce benzyl isobutyrate by Fischer esterification? and which alcohol and carboxylic acid would produce isobutyl benzoate by fischer esterification? I can't find anything about Fischer
As a go through my study guide, I'm finding that I'm getting esters and normal stoic acids confused. How can you tell when a stoic acid is an ester and when its not? Or are they always the same thing? Thanks for explaining this.
Teacher gave us homework that I really don't understand. We must write chemical reactions by which we differentiate alcohols, esters, hydrogenic carbon,carboxylic acid and halogen alkanes from each other. We must not write the
