    1.) Glacial acetic acid is mixed with liquid methanol (nonaqueous).
    What type of organic reaction can this be characterized as?

    Solution:
    Esterification. When carboxylic acid (acetic acid) and alcohol (methanol) are mixed, an ester is formed. The organic reaction is called esterification.

    2.) Chlorine gas is bubbled into cold, dilute solution of potassium hydroxide.
