Help with part of the method!

Recommended Posts

Hey there chemists!

I am doing an esterification reaction for my IA, and in order to determine Kc, I need to find out how much unreacted acid was left over.

I would like to avoid the lengthy process of washing and purifying the ester (Christmas soon, little time!) and using that as a determinant. 

The carboxylic acid and alcohol are the ones left over then. Do you know how I could isolate the acid or the alcohol, to find out its concentration?

Thanks a billion! :blowkiss:
