Preparation of ethyl ethanoate from ethanoic acid and ethanol results in an equilibrium mixture.

CH3COOH + C2H5OH- -> / <-- (reversible) CH3COOC2H5 + H2O

Once the reaction has concluded, the mixture is poured into sodium hydrogen carbonate solution. What is the purpose of the sodium hydrogen carbonate solution?

Thanks
