Synthesis of 4-bromoanisole

Preparation of 4-bromoanisole

Preparation of 4-bromoanisole by bromination anisole with bromine

Preparation of 4-bromoanisole

Preparation of 4-bromoanisole

To the round bottom flask equipped with a dropping funnel and reflux condenser 22 g (0.2 mol) of anisole were placed. The flask was heated to a gentle boiling and slowly from a dropping funnel 32 g (0.2 mol) of bromine were added at a such rate that, after addition of one drop of bromine the color disappeared after a few seconds (the disappearance of the bromine color occurs in the gas phase above the boiling liquid). After adding all bromine mixture was heated for a further 15 minutes, then cooled and added 100 ml of ether. The ether solution was transferred to a separatory funnel, washed with dilute sodium hydroxide solution, then with water, dried over anhydrous calcium chloride and filtered. The ether was removed, and the residue is distilled, taking a fraction boiling at 213-223° C. Yield about 23 g (or 60% of the theoretical). 4-bromoanisole, heavy liquid with a characteristic odor. The boiling point may differ depending on the synthesis procedure used fort he preparation 4-bromoanisole  (213-216 ° C or 223 ° C); 4-bromoanisole obtained as described above boils at 215-216 °, melting point 11.5 °, nD=1.5605.

4-Bromoanisole are obtained by bromination with bromine in a solution of anisole in solution of carbon disulfide, acetic acid or chlorofor. Bromination is also performed with phosphorus pentabromide.
