I'm currently doing a research project on aspirin and wanted to take pharmaceutical grade aspirin and see how different conditions affect the purity....Has anyone ever done anything like this before?
Otherwise im screwed!
Ha ok, do you think leaving aspirin in different conditions will affect the solubility of it? Please help. For example leaving it in a place which is really damp, exposed to sunlight etc.
Hydrolysing ASA will form acetic acid and salicylic acid. I presume having more OH bonds would cause it to be more soluble in an aqueous solution?
