Synthesis of 8-aminoquinoline

Preparation of 8-aminoquinoline

Preparation of 8-aminoquinoline

Preparation of 8-aminoquinoline

A mixture of 34.8 g. of 8-nitroquinoline, 0.25 g. of Adams platinic oxide catalyst, 150 ml. of ethyl acetate, 25 ml. of absolute ethanol, and 25 ml. of ether is agitated in the presence of hydrogen. In 1.5 hours 3 molar equivalents of hydrogen are absorbed. The resulting solution of the 8-aminoquinoline is treated with activated carbon and distilled to give 27.6 g. (96%) of 8-aminoquinoline, b.p. 140.5-141.5°/7 mm., m.p. 62.5-63.5°. One recrystallization from a mixture of ether and hexane gives product melting at 64-65°.
