1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I had a lab where we had to create esters. One of the discussion questions are What must be done before the esters are used as you suggest in (e)? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I suggested esters are used for perfumes, cosmetics, household cleaners, and scented candles. However, I am unsure of what needs to be done. Is this question asking if the ester has to undergo another reaction in order to be safe?
