    I'm just about to start my individual investigation. I'm not quite sure which experiment to do. I am looking at either the hydrolysis of esters or the Freundlich Adsorption Isotherm. Can some give me some points on what I should do?

    I did hydrolysis of ester, The basics of the experiment were just using varying temperature with dilute acid to hydrolyse the ester and titrating sample at timed intervals after quenching the reaction and recording the volume of sodium hydroxide consumed at titration and refluxing the final mixture and titrating it to find out the final volume of sodium hydroxide consumed and then with the data calculating the rate of the reaction and the activation enthalpy.

    How did that work out? I was thinking of changing the pH of the acid or even doing an alkaline hydrolysis, after I work out how to easily quench it.

    Well the experiment took quite a while since I had to set up the water bath every time I had to do the experiment.

    You could change the pH of the acid and carry out an alkaline hydrolysis and compare the two types of hydrolysis and as for quenching the reaction just use some ice.
