Preparation of ethyl 3,5-dinitrobenzoate

5 g of 3,5-dinitrobenzoic acid and 5 g of phosphorus pentachloride are gently warmed and the mixture allowed to cool. The solid dinitrobenzoyl chloride is separated from the phosphorus oxychloride by pressing on a porous plate. The crude chloride is then treated with 5 ml of ethyl alcohol, under reflux, and warmed to about 80° C for 10 minutes. The product is crystallised from 60% alcohol. m.p. 92° C.
