This encyclopaedic catalogue of the pitfalls and difficulties that every one analysts stumble upon of their paintings is destined to spend extra time at the analyst's workbench than on a library shelf. the writer has committed the e-book to ``the innumerable scientists who made error, used impure chemical compounds and solvents, suffered the results of unanticipated side-reactions, and have been differently uncovered to mayhem but have been too embarrassed to put up their findings''. often, the mass spectroscopist or gasoline chromatographer learnt his alternate via partaking in a 4-6 12 months apprenticeship as graduate pupil and post-doctoral researcher. commonly, no formal education was once supplied at the issues that get it wrong, yet this knowledge was once amassed by means of sharing within the stories of fellow workers. these days, many beginner scientists easily buy a automated software, plug it in, and use it. a lot time will be wasted in learning and resolving difficulties because of artifacts and there's additionally a robust risk that artifacts should not famous as such

1). Thus, pure cellulose pentanoates and hexanoates can be obtained in DMF without Py. 5, which summarises results for the acylation of cellulose in Py with propionyl chloride [109]. Accordingly, acylation is best performed in mixtures of a base and a diluent. 6 gives an overview of results for the cellulose propionylation with different diluents and bases, showing that the use of Py in combination with 1,4-dioxane, chlorobenzene and toluene yields efficient slurry media. 7. Highly functionalised starch palmitate and starch stearate [117], in addition to long-chain fatty acid cellulose esters from soybean fatty acids, can be obtained applying the DMF/Py mixture [118].

1 Acylation with Carboxylic Acid Chlorides and Anhydrides Conventional esterifications of polysaccharides are acylation procedures developed as heterogeneous processes, but now include homogeneous mixtures during the esterification, caused by the dissolution of the esterified product, applying usually carboxylic acid anhydrides or chlorides. In the case of sensitive acids, these reactive compounds are either expensive or inaccessible, and the anhydrides and chlorides of more complex acids are insoluble.

Acylation of polysaccharides via reactive mixed anhydrides (impeller method) Highly functionalised long-chain aliphatic acid esters of cellulose are accessible by simply mixing carboxylic acid with TFAA for 20 min at 50 ◦ C and treating the dried cellulose at 50 ◦ C for 5 h [95]. 2. 2. 91 The impeller method can be applied for the synthesis of starch acetates and cellulose benzoates with complete functionalisation. The reaction is completed if the polysaccharide dissolves in the reaction mixture (after about 75 min at 60 ◦ C, [96]).
