Draw the organic product of the following reaction and write the IUPAC name of the product
In an esterification reaction, the Bronsted acid protonates the carbonyl group present in the carboxylic acid. It makes the carbonyl carbon more electrophilic. The alcohol attacks the electrophilic carbon to form a neutral intermediate. This intermediate is tautomerized and is followed by the removal of water to give a protonated ester which is deprotonated by a weak neutral base to form ester as the final organic product.
The organic product formed in the given reaction is propyl benzoate. The substituent present in the compound is propyl as a prefix and the parent chain with the functional group is benzoate. The principle functional group is the ester functional group,
