Question:

a. rank the following in order of most acidic to least acidic. b. list 5.ways to make carboxylic acids.

structure

Preparation of Carboxylic Acid:

Carboxylic acids are organic compounds with a carboxylic functional group that has a carbonyl and a hydroxyl functional group.

It has certain functional derivatives like ester, amide, acid halide, and acid anhydride.

The carboxylic acid and its derivatives can be interconverted using certain reagents.

Answer and Explanation:

  • The image is so blurred that the compounds cannot be seen.
  • Following are the five ways to prepare carboxylic acid:

(1) {eq}\rm CH_{3}COOCH_{3} + H_{2}O \rightarrow CH_{3}COOH + CH_{3}OH {/eq}

(2) {eq}CH_{3}COCl + H_{2}O \rightarrow CH_{3}COOH + HCl {/eq}

(3) {eq}CH_{3}COOCOCH_{3} + H_{2}O \rightarrow 2CH_{3}COOH {/eq}

(4) {eq}CH_{3}CONH_{2} + H_{2}O \rightarrow CH_{3}COOH + NH_{3} {/eq}

(5) {eq}R-OH + KMnO_{4} \rightarrow R-COOH {/eq}
