Discussion

[How do your results compare with previous reports of hemiacetal formation? JCB]

Conclusion

[You have enough to answer the objective: did you find any hemi-acetal? JCB]

Log

[missing date JCB]
13:25-3.2011g of 4-Chlorobenzaldehyde added to 20 ml Test Tube #1
13:30-3.2006g of 4-Chlorobenzaldehyde added to 20 ml Test Tube #2
13:44-10ml of absolute ethanol added to each Test Tube #1 and #2 (Solid 4-Chlorobenzaldehyde remains in Test Tube #1 and #2)
13:45-Test Tube #1 and #2 placed water bath at 27C (Solid 4-Chlorobenzaldehyde persists)
13:50-Test Tube #1 and #2 in water bath at 30C (Some solid 4-Chlorobenzaldehyde persists)
13:54-Test Tube #1 and #2 in water bath at 37C (Solid 4-Chlorobenzaldehyde dissolving but some persists)
13:57-Test Tube #1 completely dissolved, water bath at 39C (Solution appears to be homogeneous)
14:01-Test Tube #2 completely dissolved, water bath at 39C (Solution appears to be homogeneous)
14:01-Test Tube #1 placed in 25C water bath and Test Tube #2 placed in 3C ice bath
14:03-Test Tube #1 water bath at 26C, Test Tube #2 ice bath at 3C
14:04-White precipitate forming on sides of Test Tube #2 (Ice bath temperature 4C)
14:05-Test Tube #2 white precipitate frozen and removed from bath, Test Tube #1 beginning to precipitate
14:19-Frozen precipitate from Test Tube #2 vacuum filtered
14:23-Test Tube #1 removed from 24C water bath (Only minimal precipitate formed,not enough for NMR) See picture #1 [pic missing from results JCB]
14:32-Filter paper removed from vacuum funnel and dried crystals from Test Tube #2 placed in Vial #2 for NMR [name NMR JCB]
