MetadataShow full item record
A two-week multi-step experiment that introduces students to mechanistic organic chemistry and substituent effects. A simple preparation of differentially substituted para-nitrophenyl benzoates is followed by ester hydrolysis with monitoring by UV-Vis spectroscopy to provide rate data for the reaction.
