Properties and stability


Storage method

This product should be sealed and stored away from light.

Synthesis method

It is obtained from p-bromoaniline through the following reaction. Cool water, p-bromoaniline and concentrated hydrochloric acid together, keep it at 0-5°C, slowly add sodium nitrite aqueous solution, and carry out diazotization until the starch potassium iodide test paper turns blue, and filter out the clear diazo liquid. Add benzene to the diazo liquid and stir at 5-10°C for half an hour. At the same time, slowly add sodium hydroxide solution dropwise. After the addition, continue stirring for 3 hours, and then stir at room temperature for 45 hours. Separate the benzene layer, wash it with water, steam out the benzene and conduct vacuum distillation. Collect the 170-175°C (1.06kPa) fraction and recrystallize it with ethanol to obtain a finished product with a melting point of 90°C.
