Chemguide: Support for CIE A level Chemistry

Learning outcome 32: Hydroxy compounds

32.1: Alcohols

Learning outcome 32.1.1

This statement adds another reaction to the reactions of alcohols that you will have met in Section 16.

It will be repeated as a part of acyl chloride chemistry in statements 33.2.1 and 33.3.2. I will give you the details now, and then repeat them later.

You will find this discussed on the page about the preparation of esters. Concentrate entirely on the basic reaction using acyl chlorides.
