    Abstract

    Upon microwave irradiation, esterification of octanoic acid with 1-octanol in the presence of hydrochloric acid as an acid catalyst proceeded more efficiently in glass vessels than in silicon carbide (SiC) vessels, affording 1-octyl octanoate in higher yields and revealing microwave effects during esterification.
