LJP07 Posted November 27, 2007 Report Share Posted November 27, 2007 I need to have this mechanism for my report but I can't figure out the mechanism for the reaction, I need it done in the next 10 hours if possible. Thanks, here's the reaction equation: Salicyclic Acid + H2SO4 + Acetyl Anhydride ---> Acetylsalicyclic Acid + H2O. The lecturer said it was "Acid-Catalysed Ester Formation". so anyone any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!:) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
