In chemistry, molecular oxohalides (oxyhalides) are a group of chemical compounds in which both oxygen and halogen atoms are attached to another chemical element A in a single molecule. They have the general formula AOmXn, where X = fluorine (F), chlorine (Cl), bromine (Br), and/or iodine (I). The element A may be a main group element, a transition element or an actinide. The term oxohalide, or oxyhalide, may also refer to minerals and other crystalline substances with the same overall chemical formula, but having an ionic structure. (Wikipedia).
In this video, I will be making n-bromopropane by brominating 1-propanol. The n-bromopropane can then be used in a Grignard reaction to make butyric acid (smell of vomit). Here is the video of me using it in a Grignard reaction: http://youtu.be/_wmx65zQk58 This process can be used as a

Acetaminophen, more commonly known by brand names such as Tylenol, is not a true NSAID, as it does not have anti-inflammatory properties. However, it is commonly discussed alongside NSAIDs as it has similar antipyretic and analgesic properties. Although its mechanism of action is not well-

Acids and bases are two types of substances that are fundamental to chemistry. An acid is a substance that donates protons (hydrogen ions, H+) to a solution, while a base is a substance that accepts protons or donates hydroxide ions (OH-) to a solution. There are several ways to define and
