The oxidative dimerization of 2-nitro propane
MetadataShow full item record
From the experimental results, it has been shown that the concentration of acetic acid is approximately 1.5 times that of ethyl acetate. The concentration of hydrogen bromide has been unquestionably ascertained by titration with standard silver nitrate which checks very closely with the calculated value. In addition to this, the reaction of acetyl bromide with 41 per cent ethanol was carried out twice, and the acidity titrated with standard sodium hydroxide. In the first case, an induction period was allowed before titration, and in the second experiment, the reaction mixture was titrated immediately. The results were nearly exactly the same. Therefore, the concentration of acetic acid is unambiguous. By difference, the relative percentage of ethyl acetate can be estimated.
