When 5% solution of alkaline potassium permanganate is added drop by drop to some warm ethanol taken in a test tube then oxidation reaction takes place, and ethanol is converted to acetic acid.
When ethanol reacts with the acetic acid, then esterification reaction occurs in which formation of an ester takes place which has a fruity sweet smell. Esters are used in making perfumes and flavouring agents. Formation of the ester is a chemical test for acetic acid.
