Partition of Butanedioic Acid Between Water and Butan-1ol

This activity, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, illustrates how to determine the partition coefficient of butanedioic acid. The distribution of butanedioic acid between water and butan-1-ol is found by shaking an aqueous solution of the acid with butan-1-ol, separating the two layers and determining the...

Rate of Hydrolysis of Aspirin

This activity, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, extends the more traditional rates of reaction experiments. It provides details on how to measure the rate of hydrolysis of aspirin and illustrates the importance of this process in real life contexts. The amount of 2-hydroxybenzoic acid produced can be determined...
