Preparation of 2-naphthyl acetate

Preparation of 2-naphthyl acetate

To 1 gram of pure 2-naphthol in 5 ml  of 10 % sodium hydroxide solution, 10 grams of crushed ice and 1.1 ml  of acetic anhydride are added. The mixture is vigorously mixed for about 10-15 minutes. The 2-naphthyl acetate separates as colorless crystals which are filtered and wash with water. Yield of crude material is about 1.4 grams. Recrystallization from petroleum, from which, on cooling the 2-naphthyl acetate separates as colorless crystals, yield 1 gram of final product with melting point 71° C.
