so we had a lab in chem class, and we mixed formic acid with an alcohol they named methyl-2-propanol, which is believe is a mistake and should be called 2-butanol, if anyone agrees/ dissagrees please let me know, and we got some nasty ass smell, i called this ester (based on my assuption the alcohol is 2-butanol) Butyl Methanoate, or Butyle formate, google shows this to be some odd ester, but i can't find its function, a collegue of mine said we were supposed to get methyl butanoate, but that cannot be possible as then our acid would be butanoic acid, and methanol for alochol...... so now im confused and dunno what to write... any suggestions from the powerfull minds of the pit?

what exactly are you confused about?? that your getting a carboxylic aicd, or that you just dont know how to name carboxylic acids with alcohols, that would be sort of like no reaction or keton or im most probable, im just talking **** cuz ive been failing organic since the beggining of school year

A phenyl ester, smelling like phosphorous, rotton eggs, smelly ass, etc...I think.
