The chemical reaction in which Alcohol and Acid react with each other in the presence of concentrated H2SO4 as a catalyst to form Ester and Water is called Esterification Reaction.

For example, CH3CH2OH+CH3COOH  -----H +----->CH3COOCH2CH3+H2O 

The process of making soap by the hydrolysis of fats and oils with alkalies is called Saponification Reaction.

For example,CH3COOC2H5 -------NaOH-------> C2H5OH+CH3COOH
