dc.description.abstract A microwave-accelerated synthesis of volatile aromatic esters is described in this convenient Fisher esterification reaction. Students perform a liquid-liquid extraction to isolate crude product which they purify by distillation. Analysis by GC/MS and NMR allows students to identify an unknown. en_US
