Aspirin Essay Topics

Properties of Analgesics

The mass of three analgesics, aspirin, buffered aspirin, and acetaminophen is certainly different. The insoluble particles in each varied as well. If base is added to aspirin, it will neutralize. If it is added to buffered aspirin and acetaminophen, then the pH will increases. First, we found the masses of four tablets of each analgesic…. View Article

Preparation Of Aspirin

Introduction Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) is an anti-inflammatory painkiller, which is extensively used, worldwide, for pain relief, to reduce inflammation and temperatures, and to reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes. Uses of aspirin * Pain relief, particularly where there is inflammation involved, including dental pain and period pain (menorrhagia). * Reducing temperature (as an… View Article

Aspirin Preparation Case

* How drugs are discovered and developed Pharmacologist along with chemist focus on a specific disease and unmet patient needs in order to discover new drugs. They search for biological targets within the body that play a role in a given disease. Unique molecules are found or created that some day might be medicines. Lead… View Article

Bayer CardioASPIRIN

With its anti-platelet qualities, Bayer and their competitors have capitalized on aspirin by developing a whole battery of sophisticated—and more expensive—dosage and delivery systems intended for the at-risk-of-a-heart-attack user. Some, such as Bayer CardioASPIRIN®, are designed for persons with sensitive stomachs and are coated for enteric digestion. The tablet of aspirin is encased by a… View Article

Bayer case2

Supply chain factors must also be taken into account in the decision-making if substantial capacity changes are involved – like reintroducing Bayer Aspirin. Key questions include: What impact will the changes have on suppliers, warehousing, transportation, and distributors? If capacity will be increased, will these elements of the supply chain be able to handle the… View Article

Synthesis of Aspirin

In this experiment, we produced 4.21 g of acetylsalicylic acid. Our theoretical yield was calculated to be 5.22 g. Therefore our % yield was determined to be 80.6%. The experimental boiling point range of acetylsalicylic acid was found to be 130-132° C. The true melting point of acetylsalicylic acid is 135° C, therefore our percent… View Article

Synthesis of Aspirin

Synthesis of Aspirin from Methyl Salicylate Introduction The synthesis of Aspirin (Acetyl Salicyclic Acid) began with methyl salicylate and sodium hydroxide as the reagent. The polar oxygen accepts the electrons from now positively charged hydrogen. The positively charged sodium disassociates leaving the hydroxide ion with a negative shows the mechanisms that were demonstrated during the synthesis… View Article

Quantitative determination of acetylsalicyclic acid

Weigh accurately a definite number of aspirin tablets (two or three tablets weighing no more than 1.5 g) into a 250 cm3 conical flask. Initiate the hydrolysis of the aspirin by adding 25 cm3 of 1.0 M sodium hydroxide by pipette, diluting with approximately the same volume of distilled water. Warm the flask over a… View Article

Synthesis of Acetylsalicylic Acid

Acetylsalicylic Acid (Aspirin) Synthesis Telow, AJV Sumicad, CJ, Tavanlar, EMMT, Chem 40.1, Institute of Chemistry, University of the Philippines Los Baños I. Introduction Organic synthesis is the process where a desired organic compound is constructed or prepared from commercially available materials. The objective of organic synthesis is to design the simplest synthetic routes to a… View Article

Thin Layer Chromatography

Using the Thin Layer Chromatography experiment, caffeine was found to be the most polar due to the fact that it stayed closer to the stationary phase. Caffeine contains four amine groups that are extremely polar as a result of the hydrogen bond and amide functional group. Acetaminophen was found to be the second most polar… View Article

Why Should We Study Chemistry

Why should we study Chemistry? Well I’ll tell you why I think I would study Chemistry, why it’s so important and crucial to know and understand. A couple reasons why are that I want to become a doctor in the future, I can see Chemistry in life, and I want to make a difference in… View Article

Datril Case

Decision Marvin Koslow, vice president for marketing services at Bristol-Myers is going to choose a positioning strategy for Datril, an acetaminophen based analgesic, in order to solidify Bristol-Myers’ position in the analgesics market and gain share in the rapidly growing acetaminophen market. There are two possible options: ‘Pricing at par with Tylenol and it as… View Article

Isolation of Crude Acetaminophen

After first isolation of crude acetaminophen, 1.22g of light, brown shiny, fine Crestline solid emulated, which demonstrated slight less than 0.030g of product was lost from original 0.150g of p-aminophenol. The melting point range of crude acetaminophen ranged from 166.8-167.6°C, when compare to the known melting point of pure acetaminophen which ranged from 169.5-171°C, is… View Article
