Abstract

The problem of plastic waste has become a pressing issue in recent years. Non-recyclable cosmetics packaging has contributed to the global plastic waste problem. In the following research, students attempted to synthesize aliphatic and aromatic esters, as potential solidifying agents. These solidifying agents, upon incorporation into liquid cosmetics, could eliminate the need for plastic packaging, enabling simple and effective transport of product. The target esters were synthesized, isolated and purified using Column Chromatography and Prep TLC, and characterized by IR, TLC, and H NMR.
