Preparaqtion of bromopicrin

Preparaqtion of bromopicrin

40 g of calcium oxide and 500 ml of water are mixed in a flask. 60 g of bromine are then added in small portions while the flask is shaken and externally cooled to prevent an excessive rise in temperature. 10 g of picric acid is then added and the mixture distilled under reduced pressure. The bromopicrin passes over in the first fractions of the distillate. It is separated from the water and dried over calcium hydroxide.
