i need help on figuring out how to combine the compounds and make them an ester, in other words i need help with esters,
I'm sure you already know plenty of examples of esters. Things that smell nice are a lot of times esters. Their carboxylic acid counterparts stink to high heaven though! A classic undergrad O chem experiment is taking something horrible like butyric acid and esterfying it to get something that smells nice.
