Designing an experiment that incorporates the synthesis of salicylic acid from a natural source, such as the flowers of the meadowsweet plant, wintergreen plant, or bark from the willow tree, and utilizing the salicylic acid to make a more natural product used to. -salicylic acid is a crystalline solid that is found in the extracts of willow bark -willow bark extracts (containing salicylic acid) have been used as pain relievers/anti-inflammatory medications since before hippocrates.
Synthesis of aspirin notes history and application salicylic acid is a precursor of aspirin salicylic acid is found naturally in willow tree bark hippocrates, the father of medicine, documented the use of willow tree bark as a medicine in the 4th century bce2 the first modern documentation of medicinal use of willow bark. Methyl salicylate is a naturally occurring compound that we will use to produce salicylic acid, which will then be used to make the wonder drug aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) this is not the source of salicylic acid in the industrial synthesis of aspirin, but it is, nevertheless, a good one for laboratory use. Acetylsalicylic acid synthesis by: elizabeth renteria theory this experiment was carried out to see how the hydroxyl group on the benzene ring in salicylic acid reacts with acetic anhydride to form an ester, and to make aspirin.
Chan 1 introduction acetyl salicylic acid, commonly known as aspirin, is one of the most common synthetic medicines first discovered in 1897 by felix hoffman, it has since been used in over 50 over-the-counter medicines. Acetylsalicylic acid (an ester derivative of salicylic acid) is much more commonly used than salicylic acid for pain relief, because the parent compound can irritate the lining of the stomach in this experiment we synthesized salicylic acid from methyl salicylate. Preparation of 5-(phenylazo)salicylic acida solution is made of 186 grams (02 mole) of aniline in a mixture of 45 ml concentrated hydrochloric acid and 45 ml water the solution is cooled to 0°c in an ice-salt bath, and a solution of 14 grams of sodium nitrite in 40 ml. This page contains syntheses of salicylic acid because these are original works, it is asked that the texts not be edited from their original form except for clarity's sake suggestions or improvements can be put in the notes section below their respective synthesis this section details. Salicylic acid and acetic anhydride in the pres- ence of phosphoric acid to form acetylsalicylic acid after synthesis, the sample of acetylsalicyl-ic acid was purified by recrystallization and tlc analysis was utilized to check the purity of the sample the actual yield of aspirin synthesized.
Drexel science in motion 1 # 14 synthesis of salicylic acid from aspirin tablets _____ purpose: acetyl salicylic acid is extracted from aspirin tablets, then is hydrolyzed to form another white solid, salicylic acid. Date experiment conducted: 05/02/2009 date report written: 08/02/2009 synthesis of acetyl salicylic acid (aspirin) abstract introduction: the following report contains information on how to produce aspirin the experiment has been carried out on a small laboratory scale the experiment starts by combining such chemicals such as salicylic acid and acetic anhydride. Salicylic acid was esterfied using acetic acid and sulfuric acid acting as a catalyst to produce acetylsalicylic acid and acetic acid the phenol group that will attack the carbonyl carbon of the acetic anhydride is the –oh group that is directly attached to the benzene since it is more basic than the –oh group attached to the carbonyl group. Synthesis of salicylic acid from wintergreen oil abstract: the purpose of this experiment is to take methyl salicylate (wintergreen oil) and by heating it under reflux with naoh as a solvent, and then cooling the mixture with h2so4 as another solvent, synthesize salicylic acid. Acetylsalicylic acid is absorbed from the intestine, it is converted back to salicylic acid it enters the bloodstream where it interferes with the synthesis of prostaglandins and irreversibly binds to an.
Synthesis, characterization and antimicrobial studies of salicylic acid complexes of some wwwiosrjournalsorg 9 | page the above structures were proposed based on the conditions of the following reactions. Salicylic acid (sa) is an important signal molecule in plants two pathways of sa biosynthesis have been proposed in plants biochemical studies using isotope feeding have suggested that plants synthesize sa from cinnamate produced by the activity of phenylalanine ammonia lyase (pal. Experiment 3: synthesis of salicylic acid from wintergreen oil purpose: the purpose of this lab was to get students familiar with glass materials often used by organic chemists and how to reflux a mixture and to filter its precipitate, through teaching students how to create salicylic acid from methyl salicylate (wintergreen oil) during the. Synthesis of salicylic acid from methyl salicylate reading and other preparation to be done before lab always read the background information and techniques book sections, watch videos of any starred techniques, and prepare your notebook before lab. S 22-24-26-39 do not breathe dustavoid contact with skinin case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advicewear eye/face protection.
Nitration on salicylic acid occurs by placing a nitro group on the aromatic ring system via an electrophilic aromatic substitution reaction here calcium nitrate is used as the nitrating agent in presence of acetic acid. Sulfuric acid, and water are infinitely miscible aspirin and salicylic acid are poorly soluble in cold water after the hydrolysis of acetic anhydride is complete, the reaction is diluted with water and. Exp 4 - synthesis of salicylic acid from wintergreen oil study guide by chenderzahs includes 24 questions covering vocabulary, terms and more quizlet flashcards, activities and games help you improve your grades.
The chemical equation for the synthesis of aspirin is c7h6o3 + c4h6o3 – c9h8o4 +c2h4o2, which is a reaction of salicylic acid with acetic anhydride in the presence of phosphoric acid the byproduct is acetic acid. Metabolite, salicylic acid2 aspirin is a salicylate drug because it is an ester of salicylic acid it is it is commonly known for its pain relieving properties. Salicylic acid (sa) has been shown to regulate various aspects of growth and development it also serves as a critical signal for activating disease resistance in arabidopsis thaliana and other plant species this review surveys the mechanisms involved in the biosynthesis and metabolism of this critical plant hormone.
