    for one of the organic questions it said when u react an acid with alcohol to make an ester a catalyt is needed, is it aqeous HCl?

    also it said for hydrolysis of esters in alkaline conditions, a further step is needed after that, i said add aqeous HCL to get the carb acid back from its salt, is that right?

    For the further step, i think its First, hydrolysing ethyl ethanoate (or wotever the ester used) using sodium hydroxide solution and the second step is to hydrolyse methyl propanoate ( or wot ever the product was) in the same way.

    Please correct if im wrong
