Barcena, Homar; Tuachi, Abraham; Zhang, Yuanzhuo
Journal of Chemical Education, v94 n9 p1314-1318 Sep 2017
The synthesis of epoxidized soybean oil (ESO) provides students a vantage point on the application of green chemistry principles in a series of experiments. Qualitative tests review the reactions of alkenes, whereas spectroscopic analyses provide insight in monitoring functional group transformations.
