Preparation of 4-iodo-m-xylene

Preparation of 4-iodo-m-xylene

10 g of meta-xylene are dissolved in 80 ml of ligroin, and the obtained solution is poured on to 120 ml of nitric acid (d=1.34 g/cm3). 20 g of powdered sulfur iodide are then added and the reaction is heated under a reflux for 3-4 hours. The organic layer is then separated, washed with dilute solution of NaOH, and the ligroin evaporated. The residue is steam-distilled, and the oil which comes over collected and redistilled over a little solid K2CO3 yielding 75 % of 4-iodo-m-xylene which is colorless oil with boiling point of 220° C.
