Product Details

To prepare a carboxylic acid (benzoic acid) in this demonstration, the Grignard reagent is carboxylated in a reaction with dry ice. After the reaction is complete, hot water is added to evaporate any remaining solvent. Acid is added to dissolve the magnesium salts and liberate the carboxylic acid. Once the solution is cooled, the acid can be collected. In this experiment, students will prepare a carboxylic acid (benzoic acid) by the Grignard method.

Contains:
1 x 5 g Magnesium Metal Turnings
2 x 25 ml Tetrahydrofuran
1 x 20 ml Bromobenzene
1 x 1 g Iodine Crystals
1 x 25 ml Hydrochloric Acid, 36%
1 x 10 g Decolorizing Carbon

Each bottle of our reagents come standard with an MSDS sheet included. If you require a copy of this prior to purchase, please contact us.
