Experiment - A Study of Esterification
The original airdate of this according to BFI is 1975 - Thanks Hexelein for your help on this.
My recording obviously was a re-run.
For the real schools programme enthusiasts I've left the one minute countdown clock at the beginning.
Esters are compounds formed by a combining an alcohol and an acid. An esterification is a reaction which achieves this.
An example is the production of methyl benzoate (Artificial flavour/ Essence of Niobe) from methanol and benzoic acid.
Plenty of 'write that downs' in this one
