The purpose of this experiment was to obtain dibenzalacetone through condensation of acetone with 2 equivalents of benzaldehyde and to calculate the percent yield and the melting point(s) of the final product.
5ml of benzaldehyde and 1.8ml of acetone were mixed. Half of this mixture was added to the already made solution containing 5g of sodium hydroxide and 50ml of water and 40ml of ethanol. After some period of time, the other half of mixture was added to the solution and the flask was rinsed with ethanol. The mixture was swirled occasionally for about half an hour, after which the product was collected by suction filtration. 100ml of water was then poured over the product. This process of suction and the addition of water was repeated several times. At last, the final product was pressed between two sheets of filter paper to remove water. Small sample was saved for the determination of the melting point, and the rest of the product was re crystallized from ethanol (10ml of ethanol for 4g of dibenzalacetone).

OBSERVATION AND EXPLANATION
The final product obtained was dibenzalacetone. This molecule actually consists of three isomers having different properties.
The amount of dibenzalacetone before re crystallization was 3.647g. The amount of ethanol used for re crystallization was 9.1ml. The amount of re crystallized dibenzalacetone was 3.893g. The percent yield was 67%.
As mentioned earlier, dibenzalacetone consists of three isomers: two solids and a liquid. The melting points obtained were 107-110 degrees Celsius and 58-60 degrees Celsius.

DrugsDrugs TOBACCO Tobacco is a plant grown for its leaves that are smoked, chewed, or sniffed for a variety of effects. It is considered an addictive substance because it contains the chemical nicotine. The tobacco plant is believed to have originated in the Western Hemisphere. The cultivated species most often grown for North American and European tobacco products is Nicotine Tabacum. The leaves of the plant are prepared for smoking, chewing, or sniffing. In addition nicotine tobacco contains over
EnviormentalismEnviormentalism Evironmentalism: The Next Step Broad Social Change Through Personal Commitment Introduction In the last thirty years, America has witnessed an environmental revolution. New laws like the 1963 Clean Air Act and the 1974 Safe Drinking Water Act forged new ground in political environmentalism. Social phenomena like Earth Day, organized by Dennis Hayes in 1970, and the beginning of large-scale recycling, marked by Oregon\'s 1972 Bottle Bill, have help change the way Americans think a
Malaysia Country ReportMalaysia Country Report As the world prepares to move into the twenty-first century, many nations are rapidly developing their agricultural and manufacturing sectors. As these burgeoning industries become a larger part of the nation’s economy, the nation finds its population restructuring and streaming to the areas of growth. Just as the people are trying to compete for their survival, the nation is fighting its way to center stage in the world economy. The development of these countries is tied
TerrorismTerrorism 1) It is very difficult to resolve the international problem of terrorism for several major reasons. Terrorists usually don\'t claim responsibility for their actions until the fuse is lit, it\'s not a case of Jack The Ripper sending an ear to the cops and warning them who his next victim will be. Terrorists usually do claim responsibility for their actions after the media is aware that something happened, this gains recognition for their cause, which is often the reason they resort to
UzbekistanUzbekistan Current Political Economic Situation Political situation Uzbekistan, the most populated republic in Central Asia with almost 25 million in-habitants, became independent, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, on 31 August 1991. Its constitution, adopted in 1992, is rather liberal in its statement. It introduces a Presidential system with a Parliament (Oly Majlis/Supreme Council) elected by universal suffrage, enabling several parties to present candidates. Mr Islam Karimov, former he
Malaysian Economic Policy and FDI.Malaysian Economic Policy and FDI. BACKGROUND AND COUNTRY ATTRACTIVENESS. Malaysia is the second fastest growing economy in the South East Asian region with an average Gross National Product (GNP) growth of eight-plus percent per year in the last seven years. Since independence in 1957, Malaysia has moved from an agriculturally based economy to a more diversified and export oriented one. The Malaysian market is fairly openly oriented, with tariffs only averaging approximately fifteen percent and
AboriginesAborigines History The first people to live in Australia were called Aborigines. They migrated there about 40,000 years ago. The continent remained relatively unknown by outsiders until the 17th century. The first Europeans to settle were British convicts in 1788. They arrived at Botany Bay in southeastern Australia. Australia grew as a group of British colonies during the 19th century, and in 1901 the colonies federated to form a unified independent nation. National Government The federal parli
