Properties and stability


Storage method


Synthesis method

It is derived from the reaction of ethyl acetoacetate and thiourea. Dissolve thiourea in sodium hydroxide solution, add ethyl acetoacetate dropwise, and control the temperature at 37below. After reacting 2h, add water and activated carbon, stir at 70-80Decolorization 0.5h. Filter, acidify the filtrate with hydrochloric acid to pH4-5, cool to room temperature, filter and wash. The filter cake is recrystallized with water to obtain the finished product. The yield is 66%. During production, ethyl acetoacetate and thiourea can also be mixed first, and then sodium oxide solution is added dropwise; anhydrous sodium carbonate can also be used instead of sodium hydroxide, and the yield is roughly the same.
