The saponification of ester with a strong base is a second order reaction. For example ethyl acetate react with sodium hydroxide to produce sodium acetate and ethyl alcohol. The equation is written as
CH3COOC2H5 + NaOH == CH3COONa + C2H5OH
Main Unit Comprising of the following components:
A space saving bench constructed from chemically resistant worktop. Stainless steel 304, gauge 16. 40”*36”*60” b) Reactors
