Acetylsalycilic Acid?


Recommended Posts

You can make methylsalicylate if you have the salicylic acid. It's a little early in the morning for me, so I can't quite remember how to convert the ASA to SA, but it's definitely possible; perhaps if I remember I'll edit this post :)


autohydrolysis takes ages, so to speed it up add sodium Hydroxide to the ASA.

that strips off the Acetyl as Sodium Acetate, adding HCL will then PPT SA, that can be filtered out and then washed.


that`s the quick way to do it IIRC.
