Ester Lab

Learners investigate making esters in the lab. In this ester lesson plan, students mix 3 organic acids with 3 alcohols and a catalyst to form 3 different esters. Learners identify the odors of each ester and write the formulas for the products. They answer 5 questions and draw the structural formulas for each esterification reaction.
