In the following reaction, 0.157g of p-acetaminophenol was
used to react with 0.486 g of acetic anhydride to produce acetaminophen and acetic acid. The product was purified
and acetimophen was extracted. The actual mass of acetaminophen produced was 0.198 g. Determine
the theoretical yield and the percent yield of isopentyl acetate.
