Extraction Of Salicylic Acid2008
 INTRODUCTION:
In this experiment, I will be extracting salicylic acid using various processes. Esterslike methyl salicylate are found in nature, and can be converted into salicylic acid. Itis obtained as oil of wintergreen which used to be made by dry distillation of theleaves of the evergreen shrub. The salicylic acid will be obtained from the methylester by the process of hydrolysis, using dilute sodium hydroxide solution.
 AIM:
The aim of this experiment is to extract salicylic acid from methyl esters usinghydrolysis.
