Formation of carboxylic acid derivatives
In this tutorial, Sal shows the formation of carboxylic acid derivatives including esters, acyl chlorides, and amides.
Fischer Esterification of Carboxylic Acids
Acetic Acid to Acetyl Chloride mechanism. Can be generalized to forming any acid halide from a carboxylic acid
