Volatility
The ease that a liquid turns into a gas; it increases ans boiling point decreases
1 of 9
Reflux
The continual boiling and condensing of a reaction mixture to ensure that the reaction takes place without the contents of the flask boiling dry

Esterification
The reaction of an alcohol with a carboxylic acid to produce an ester and water
3 of 9
Dehydration
An elimination reaction in which water is removed from a saturated molecule to make an unsaturated molecule

Hydrolysis
A reaction with water or aqueous hydroxide ions that breaks a chemical compound into two compounds
5 of 9
Nucleophilic Substitution
A type of substitution reaction in which a nucleophile is attracted to an electron-rich centre or atom where it donates a pair of electrons to form a new covalent bond
