Synthesis of N-(3-bromo-2-methylphenyl)acetamide

Preparation of N-(3-bromo-2-methylphenyl)acetamide

Preparation of N-(3-bromo-2-methylphenyl)acetamide

Preparation of N-(3-bromo-2-methylphenyl)acetamide

20 g of N-(2-methylphenyl)acetamide are dissolved in 130 g of glacial acetic acid, and bromine-laden air is drawn through the solution by means of a filter-pump until the whole solidifies to a white, crystalline mass. The acetic acid is then removed as completely as possible by draining on a Buchner funnel at the pump, and the N-(3-bromo-2-methylphenyl)acetamide recrystallised from alcohol. Yield 15 g m.p. 156-157. The acetyl group can be removed by boiling with hydrochloric acid.
