The Zeisel determination or Zeisel test is a chemical test for the presence of esters or ethers in a chemical substance   . In a qualitative test a sample is first reacted with a mixture of acetic acid and hydriodic acid in a test tube. The ensuing reaction results in the cleavage of the ether or the ester into an alkyl iodide and respectively an alcohol or an carboxylic acid.
