Brittney Brown Due: 10-29-2009 Title: Multi-step synthesis of 4-bromo-2chloroacetanilide Lab Partner: Chelsea Searels The purpose of this lab was to covert 4-bromo-2-chloroacetanilide from aniline through a series of steps being attentive of the percent yield. Experimental infrared spectroscopes and melting points were obtained of the products for confirmation of the desired products. Experimental Details: Table 1.

Week Three: 4-bromo-2-chloroacetanilide from 4-bromoacetanilide Suspeneded 4- bromoacetanilide 2.00g 214.06 9.3 1.717 166-170°C HCl 6mL 36.46 139 1.18 BP= 110°C Acetic acid 7mL 60.05 111.12 1.049 118.1°C NaClO3 0.501g 106.5 4.6 2.5 MP= 448°C The mutli-step synthesis was completed over a course of three weeks. In the first week, aniline was prepared from nitrobenzene by adding 6.094g of granulated tin combined with 2.6mL of nitrobenzene in a 100-mL boiling flask. An ice bath made at 0°C and 13mL of HCl was added to the solution. A thermometer was inserted and the solution was stirred, maintaining a temperature of between 55 and 60°C. After 15 minutes, the mixture was heated on a reflux to ensure the completion of the reaction. Only 0.3g of aniline was collected. The aniline was noted
