    investigate whether different formulations of aspirin would affect its bioavailability. This required the use of normal aspirin tablets, aspirin tablets with sodium bicarbonate, soluble aspirin, and enteric coated aspirin. Depending on which group the students were allocated they administered different formulations of aspirin. The pH and the concentration of salicylate in each urine sample, collected at different time points, was determined after administering the drug. A standard curve for salicylate was generated to calculate its concentration in each urine sample by comparing the optical density using the following equation: change in optical density (from control)×1/(gradient of graph)=concentration…

    Medicine has evolved greatly, especially in terms of drugs, but one of the basics is aspirin, also referred to as acetylsalicylic acid. There are many different reactions that can be conducted in order to synthesize aspirin. One way being the Fischer esterification, which is a reaction between an alcohol and a carboxylic acid within the presence of a catalyst, synthesizing an ester (Weldegirma, 2014). The catalyst has to be something that will provide the addition of a proton, such as a Lewis…

    Abstract: The objective of this experiment was to synthesize aspirin from salicylic acid and acetic anhydride. The general theory behind this experiment was to study the synthesis of a drug from organic materials. During the experiment, esterification had occurred between reactants salicylic acid and acetic anhydride. Then, phosphoric acid would catalyze the reaction and water would be added to decompose the remaining acetic anhydride. Through the process of filtration, aspirin crystals were…

    Task 3 P1 When using thin layer chromatography (TLC) to test for purity of aspirin it is a quick and simple method. Firstly when using the TLC method you need to have a TLC sheet and mark on the sheet 0.5cm up on the sheet and draw a line, make sure you don’t press too hard on the paper as this will disrupt the absorbent on the paper. You need to make sure the samples have been marked on the paper so you don’t get mixed up and leave a gap between the aspirin samples so they don’t run together…

    Aspirin is produced from the reaction of Salicylic Acid and Acetic Anhydride. Aspririn is a analgesic and antipyretic. The purpose of this experiment is to produce aspirin and analyzing it for yield. Twenty grams of salicylic acid, molecular weight 138.1g/mol, 5.0 mL of acetic anhydride, molecular weight 102.1g/mol and density 1.08g/mL, and 5 drops of concentrated sulfuric acid were mixed in a 125mL flask. The mixture was heated in a 70°C hot water bath then taken out to cool to room…
