Preparation of 4-iodoacetanilide

Preparation of 4-iodoacetanilide

A solution of 1 mole of iodine monochloride is dropped, with stirring, into a solution of 1 mole of acetanilide in 150 ml of glacial acetic acid (exothermic reaction!) and the reaction mixture is stirred for a further few hours yielding precipitates of 4-iodoacetanilide. After 12 hours, the mixture is poured into 2 liters of water, and the product is collected and washed with water and dilute sodium hydroxide solution. Recrystallization of this crude material from ethanol gives a 90% yield of the 4-iodoacetanilide, m.p. 184° C.
