Synthesis of benzoic anhydride

Preparation of benzoic anhydride

Preparation of benzoic anhydride

Preparation of benzoic anhydride

25 g of benzoyl chloride are slowly added to 10 ml of pyridine and 8 g of anhydrous sodium carbonate. After standing for half an hour the whole is poured into water, and the precipitated benzoic anhydride filtered off and washed with cold water. By dissolving the dried product (use a vacuum desiccator) in petroleum ether, and then evaporating the solution at the ordinary temperature in vacuo, the benzoic anhydride is obtained as long colourless needles which melt at 42° C.
