Answer to Question #7656 in Organic Chemistry for waqar ahmed
which is more protic solvent the water r ethylacetate
Polar protic solvent is a polar protic molecule consists of a polar group OH and a non-polar tail. The structure may be represented by a formula R-OH. Ethyl acetate is dipolar aprotic molecule possess a large bond dipole moment (a measure of polarity of a molecule chemical bond). They do not contain OH group. Thereby the water is a protic solvent, but the ethylacetate is not a protic solvent. Water is more protic solvent than ethylacetat.
