The synthesis of aspirin is a common esterification reaction. It is based on the balanced reaction given in the background of this lab. Calculate the theoretical yield of aspirin given that 3.52-mL of acetic anhydride was reacted with 0.9457-g of salicylic acid. Synthesized solids often need to be purified prior to use. What are some ways you could purify synthesized aspirin in the laboratory? Explain why you would not expect to smell acetic acid after the addition of sodium bicarbonate to the esterification reaction mixture.
