Stage 2 Chemistry Practical
Posted on July 04, 2018
This term, Stage 2 Chemistry students came to Marden Laboratories to produce, then purify, a range of esters using a process known as Fischer esterification. This organic synthesis technique was developed in 1895 by the great Nobel Prize winning chemist Emil Fischer.
If you’d like to learn some more about esters and other interesting functional groups, you should consider studying chemistry at Open Access College next year.
