Synthesis of Aspirin Equation?


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).

The synthesis of aspirin is classified as an esterification reaction. Salicylic acid is treated with acetic anhydride, an acid derivative, causing a chemical reaction that turns salicylic
The two impurities in aspirin synthesis are salicylic and acetic anhydride. The catalyst of these impurities is phosphoric acid.
