Preparation of benzylcyanamide

A solution of 2.1 g. of cyanogen bromide (0.02 mole) in 14 ml of anhydrous ether was added, dropwise with stirring, to a solution of 4.3 g. of benzylamine  (0.04 mole), cooled externally by an ice-water-bath. The benzylamine hydrobromide was removed by filtration and the filtrate evaporated to dryness in vacuo at room temperature. The crude product, 2.6 g. (95%), m.p. 42-44°C  is not stable and should be used immediately.
