Question

A reaction that produced $4.8 \mathrm{mg}$ of taxol, an anticancer drug, is reported to have a yield of $38 \%$. What was the theoretical yield?

Solution

VerifiedStep 1

1 of 2Use the percent yield equation to calculate the theoretical yield of the reaction.

$\begin{align*} \mathrm{percent\;yield} &=\dfrac{\text{actual yield}}{\text{theoretical yield}}\times100\%\\\\ \implies\\ \text{theoretical yield}&= \dfrac{\left(\text{actual yield}\right)\left(100\%\right)}{\text{percent yield}}\\ &=\begin{array}{c|c} 4.8\;\mathrm{mg} & 100\%\\ \hline & 38\% \end{array}\\ &= 13\;\mathrm{mg} \end{align*}$
