I am doing a chemistry investigation and one component of that requires me to synthesize ethanol from ethene. Ethene itself is gaseous at room temperature and pressure so I was wondering if someone could suggest how I can carry out this synthesis with the use of acids to obtain ethanol.
To give you an idea of what I am actually doing for this investigation, I am trying to find the yield of ethanol when ethene is hydrated using different acid catalysts. However, because ethene is gaseous, I don't know how I am going to actually do this experiment.
To further clarify, I know what reagents I need to use and I know the mechanism of the reaction, I just don't know how to do it practically within a laboratory setting.
