Synthesis of m-anisidine

Preparation of m-anisidine

A mixture of 35 g. (0.23 mole) of m-nitroanisole (p. 213), 110 ml. of methanol, and 7.5 ml. of concentrated hydrochloric acid is stirred and heated to boiling. Forty-two grams (0.75 gram atom) of iron filings is added in small portions over a 1-hour period, and refluxing and stirring are continued for 5 additional hours. The mixture is made strongly alkaline with sodium hydroxide and steam-distilled, the methanol which first distils over being collected separately. The remainder of the distillate is extracted with ether; the ethereal solu­tion is dried over anhydrous sodium sulfate and distilled. m-Anisidine (23.2 g. or 80%) is collected at 125°/13 mm.
