What is the chemical equation for the synthesis of aspirin?

Answer

Aspirin is not made from acetic acid but it is a byproduct. Aspirin is made from salicylic acid and acetic anhydride. The balanced chemical equation is C7H6O3 (Salicylic acid) + C4H6O3 (Ethanoic anhydride) => C9H8O4 (Aspirin) + C2H4O2 (Acetic acid).
