Abstract

The solvent effects of the esterification of l-menthol with acetyl chloride in various solvents have been examined polarimetrically. In liquid sulfur dioxide, the rate of the esterification was the fastest among the solvents used. A bare carbonium ion formation in liquid sulfur dioxide may be the reason for this. The comparably large rate in dimethylformamide has also been discussed, along with the solvent effects in various other solvents.
