Establish the balanced equation of the reaction of CHCl3 and CCl4 and use stoichiometry to determine the actual yield and eventually the percent yield
The balanced equation of CHCl3 with Cl2 will appear as:
CHCl3 + Cl2 → CCl4 + HCl
Recall that percent yield is given by:
The reaction of 11.9 g of CHCl3 with excess chlorine produced 11.2 g of CCl4, carbon tetrachloride:
What is the percent yield?
