Isoamyl acetate (C7H14O2), a compound with a banana-like odor and taste that is commonly used in artificial banana flavoring, is formed fairly readily from the reaction of acetic acid (CH3COOH) and isoamyl alcohol (C5H11OH) CH3COOH + C5H11OH -> C7H14O2 + H2O a). If you react 100.0g acetic acid with 100.0g isoamyl alcohol, what is the theoretical yeild for the production of isoamyl acetate? b). If the reaction you run in (a) above actually produces 48.39g of isoamyl acetate, what is the percent yeild for the reaction? c). If the reaction for the production of isoamyl acetate given above 82.0% effective, what mass of isoamyl alcohol would you need to produce 2.500kg of isoamyl acetate? You have unlimited acetic acid.
