Volatility
The ease with which a liquids turns into a gas.

The continual boiling and condensing of a reaction mixture to ensure that the reaction takes pace without the contents of the flask boiling dry.
2 of 10
Esterification
The reaction of an alcohol with a carboxylic acid to produce an ester and water
3 of 10
Dehydration
An elimination reaction in which water is removed from a saturated molecule to make an unsaturated molecule.

Primary alcohol
The OH group is attached to a C atom which is attached to a maximum of one other C atoms i.e the OH group is on the end of the chain
5 of 10
Secondary alcohol
The OH group is attached to a C atom which is attached to 2 other C atoms. ie, the OH group is somewhere in the middle of the chain but not on the same C atom as a branch
6 of 10
Tertiary alcohol
The OH group is attached to a C atom which is attached to 3 other C atoms.
