Aspirin is prepared by the reaction of salicylic- acid with acetic anhydride as shown in the following equation. The stoichiometry of the reaction is given in the equation. Acetic acid is a by-product of the reaction and must be separated and removed so that aspirin can then be sold as a pure product. How many grams of aspirin can be prepared from 120 grams of salicylic acid? Assume that there is an excess of acetic anhydride. (Chapter 4) Acetylsalieylic acid (Aspirin)
