Preparation of 4-(bromomethyl)quinoline

Preparation of 4-(bromomethyl)quinoline

0.1 mole of 4-methylquinoline (lepidine) is added to a stirred suspension of N-bromosuccinimide (0.08 mole) in carbon tetrachloride at 60° C. The mixture is boiled under reflux for 30 min, then filtered hot. The 4-(bromomethyl)quinoline crystallizes from the filtrate in white crystals (10 g), from which adhering succinimide is removed by thorough washing with water. When dried in a vacuum, 4-(bromomethyl)quinoline has m.p. 88-91°. 4-(Bromomethyl)quinoline is unstable and should be used as soon as possible.
