Process NMR

Simple Reaction Chemistry


Presented here are several simple reactions monitored by 60 MHz process NMR performed in a 5 mm NMR tube.

Reaction #1: Acetic Anhydride in Water - Reacts to form Acetic Acid
Acetic Anhydride in Water - Reacts to form Acetic Acid
Acetic Anhydride in Water - Reacts to form Acetic Acid
Acetic Anhydride in Water - Reacts to form Acetic Acid
Reaction #2: Acetic Anhydride + Excess of Methanol + Acid
- Yields Acetic Acid and Acetic Methyl Ester

First Reaction was Performed without Shaking the Sample before Observation
Acetic Anhydride + Excess of Methanol + Acid - Yields Acetic Acid and Acetic Methyl Ester
Acetic Anhydride + Excess of Methanol + Acid - Yields Acetic Acid and Acetic Methyl Ester
Acetic Anhydride + Excess of Methanol + Acid - Yields Acetic Acid and Acetic Methyl Ester
Second Reaction was Performed with a vigorous shake of the NMR tube before observation.
Acetic Anhydride + Excess of Methanol + Acid - Yields Acetic Acid and Acetic Methyl Ester
Acetic Anhydride + Excess of Methanol + Acid - Yields Acetic Acid and Acetic Methyl Ester
Acetic Anhydride + Excess of Methanol + Acid - Yields Acetic Acid and Acetic Methyl Ester
