Hi, I am an Intro to Chem student (prereq to Gen Chem) and I have been feverishly trying to finish up my semester-long Careers in Chemistry project (for which I chose CRNA and propofol C12H18O
for the commonly used chemical compound).
The last checkpoint (before I can begin the tri-fold presentation poster) asks for a balanced chemical equation for the synthesis of the chosen compound (and states that it may not be how it is actually manufactured). I have been searching the internet for the last several days hoping I could find a balanced chemical equation for the synthesis of propofol that I could cite but have been unable to locate an actual chemical equation. So, I have resorted to guessing and am wondering if
4 H4C3 + H2O --> C12H18O
could be a possible correct answer to this question? :hmmmm:
Thank you very much for your help,
Michelle :1zhelp:
