Chemical Reaction: Synthesis of Acetanilide

Sophomore (College 2nd year) ・Chemistry ・MLA

a. Acetic acid is introduced as a solvent and prevents the occurrence of unwanted substitution reactions.
b. Water acts as a solvent of acetanilide seeing that it is unreactive with the compound. Similarly, since water has a lower boiling factor (100C) compared to the melting point acetanilide (110.50C), it would effortlessly evaporate when heated leaving behind acetanilide during recrystallization. Also, water is favored since it can be able to dissolve a lot of acetanilide whilst hot and allow a lot of it when cooled seeing that it dissolves only a small amount when cool. It will be effortless to obtain dry crystals since water is moderately volatile therefore much of it evaporates.
c. Since charcoal is carbon, it is used as an activator in this reaction. When carbon is added in this reaction, the temperature of the reacting solutions raises and may result in frothing. The charcoal also assists in adsorbing the colored impurities and polymeric to avoid contamination of the end product.
1. Acetic anhydride is more reactive than acetic acid, therefore; there will be better yields. This is because only half the water is formed per mole, thus, favoring the forward reaction. In case acetic acid is used, more water will be formed, and reverse reaction will be favored leading to the formation of esters.
2. Pyridine and 30 amines are weak bases and are used as a nucleophilic catalyst in the reaction.
3. Monoacylation requires the only electrophilic substitution of the arenes and acyl chlorides or anhydrides to occur while for diacylation, the product formed during the first substitution must be activated to allow the reaction to undergo a second substitution. A catalyst such as a Lewis acid catalyst must be present.
4. a. N, N-diphenylacetamide, and acetic acid
b. Acetic acid
c. Acetophenone and acetic acid
d. P-methylacetophenone
e. Ethyl acetate and acetic acid

First time when I placed an order with you, I just lacked time to do all the homework and it was a lot going on in my family. But today I’m doing it sometimes just for fun – I really enjoy communicating with your Customer Support members and just letting myself being a bit lazy

My GPA is 4.0 and I’ve always been doing everything myself, but there is a class which I was about to fail thus my GPA would decrease first time in so many years. I ordered few assignments to be completed with and you did a great job! Thanks to you I still remain one of the best students on campus.

I am not used to such services and I usually write all the papers by myself. But this time I got in a very difficult situation and had to order my paper on this website. To my surprise it appeared to be quite good. Thank you, it is really nice service. Think I'll get back to you soon!

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
