To minimize the amount of water in the system as much as possible
Use a short stem funnel
By heating with the heat gun
Addition of a few crystals of iodine
The mixture has to maintain a gentle boil
The mixture will foam heavily
The keep the moisture out during the reaction
The aqueous layer=bottom layer
Water interferes with the esterification!
