Synthesis of t-butyl bromoacetate

Preparation of t-butyl bromoacetate

Preparation of t-butyl bromoacetate

Preparation of t-butyl bromoacetate

In a three-neck flask, fitted with a stirrer, a calcium chloride tube and a dropping funnel were placed 124 g. (1.02 mol.) dimethyl aniline, 74 g. (1 mol.) t-butyl alcohol and 165 ml. ether. A 200-g. sample (0.99 mol.) of bromoacetylbromide was run into the stirred solution within 1 hour while the flask was cooled in an ice bath. Stirring was continued for 4 hours at room temperature. The crystallized dimethylaniline hydrobromide was dissolved by addition of 150 ml of water; the ether layer was treated with three 40-ml portions of 10% sulfuric acid, then with sodium bicarbonate solution and water. The organic phase was dried over sodium sulfate and filtered. The ether was distilled through a Vigreux column and the ester was fractionated at reduced pressure. A 152 g. sample (78%) of colorless t-butyl bromoacetate, boiling at 69-70.5° C/17-18 mm. was obtained.
