Synthesis of 2-iodo-4-nitroaniline

Preparation of 2-iodo-4-nitroaniline

Preparation of 2-iodo-4-nitroaniline

Preparation of 2-iodo-4-nitroaniline

10 g of 4-nitroaniline are dissolved in the least possible quantity of cold glacial acetic acid, and, with continual stirring, a solution of 17.8 g of iodine chlorine dissolved in acetic acid added slowly. When all the iodine chloride has been added the reaction mixture is allowed to stand for one hour and then poured into 1 liter of boiling water. After boiling for a few minutes the solution is filtered, and on cooling, the filtrate forms long yellow needles of 2-iodo-4-nitroaniline, melting at 105° C.

By working at a higher temperature and using double the quantity of iodine chloride, 2,6-diiodo-4-nitroaniline could be obtained.
