Condensation Reactions – Big IdeaTwo smaller molecules combine to form one larger molecule.A small molecule, usually water, is eliminated in the process
Esterification Process – RCOOH +ROHEsters have distinct fruity smells.Used extensively in industry for fragrance and flavoring.The esterification reaction is also important in formation ofpolymers
Amide formation - RCOOH + RNH2 Example 1: Sketch a diagram to show the formation of ethyl butanoate by the process of esterification. Example 2: Sketch a diagram to show the formation of the amide product of a reaction between ethanol and propylamine.
Condensation Polymerization - ExamplesRecall – polymers are long chains of subunits called monomers.If reacting molecules each have two functional groups that canundergo condensation, a polymer chain can form.Consider: ethane-1,2-diol and benzene-1,4- (ethylene glycol) dicarboxylic acid
Formation of Terylene (Dacron)Monomer subunit would look like this.
Formation of Terylene (Dacron) + a bunch of H2O
