Synthesis of amylocaine (1-((dimethylamino)methyl)-1-methylpropyl benzoate)

Preparation of amylocaine

Preparation of amylocaine (1-((dimethylamino)methyl)-1-methylpropyl benzoate)

Preparation of amylocaine (1-((dimethylamino)methyl)-1-methylpropyl benzoate)

100 g of 1-(dimethylamino)-2-methylbutan-2-ol are mixed with a solution of 115 g of benzoyl chloride dissolved in 200 g of benzol. The reaction starts by the evaluation of heat and the hydrochloride of amylocaine separates. The reaction is complete by boiling for some time and then the reaction mixture is cooled, the crystals are filtered off, washed with cold benzol and recrystallized from absolute alcohol, or by dissolving in the minimum amount of methyl alcohol and mixing with an equal volume of acetone. Amylocaine  forms small colorless, glistening, scaly crystals, which melt at 175° C. Amylocaine is very soluble in water, readily soluble in alcohol and almost insoluble in ether.
