2-Ethyl-1-hexanol was needed for the synthesis of the sunscreen octyl p-methylcin-namate. Show how this alcohol could be synthesized (a) by an aldol condensation ofbutanal and (b) by a malonic ester synthesis starting with diethyl malonate.
2016/08/05 TITRATION OF STRONG ACID WITH STRONG BASE The pH of the solution at the equivalencepoint in an acid-basetitration is the value at the steepest point in the vertical portion of the pH versus volume of the titrant curve. AQUEOUS EQUILIBRIA The pH increases very rapidly near the equivalence point up to 7. That is pH rises 7 units. + This implies that [3 O ] decreases by the factor of 10 x 10 when only a drop or two of the NaOH is added. The steepest point of the vertical portion of the curve is at pH = 7. TITRATION OF STRONG ACID WITH TITRATION OF WEAK ACID WITH STRONG STRONG BASE BASE The pH of the solution at the equivalence poi
