Ethane-1,2-diol is heated under reflux with ethanoic acid and a small amount of H2SO4
catalyst. Compound A is formed with molecular formula C6H10O4.
Draw the structure of compound A.
I got this question wrong, mainly because i've never seen a question like this before. I know that alcohol and carboxylic acid makes ester but i dont really know how to draw esters, acyl chloride, amine and nitrile. Let alone coming up with a structure. So i have realised that there would be two esters but how would it look and what is the theory behind it
