    Firstly, what are the similarities and differences that occur in the method for preparing paracetamol, in comparison to the preparation of aspirin from 2-hyroxybenzoic acid and ethanoic anhydride? Also, what are some more industrial advantages of using ethanoic anhydride over ethanoyl chloride in the manufacture of the drug aspirin (BESIDES no HCl released as a by-product, and the fact that the acid anhydride is cheaper?). Thanks.

    Just wondering, why do i get the impression that you are utilising the site fully for ideas/answers to write up your investigation?

    You can always try and read chemguide, wikipedia or some advanced textbooks in school. That way, you get more info faster instead of waiting for people to reply to your questions.

    Didn't mean any offence there.
