The above reaction is an example of (oxidation) (reduction) (hydrolysis). The
general form of an ester is ____________.
The ester in the above reaction is __________ _________. Hydrolysis of an
ester results in the formation of an ___________ and a __________
__________. We know that a carboxylic acid can be reduced to form another
__________. Therefore, the combined processes of hydrolysis and reduction of
an ester results in the formation of two ___________.
