During the addition of the cyanide solution the temperature of the mixture rises a few de- grees (usually to about 75°), and finally a clear pale-brown solu- tion of potassium cupro-cyanide is obtained. Now add the diazonium solution to the potassium cupro- cyanide in small quantities at a time so that the temperature of the mixture remains between 60° and 70°: shake the mixture vigor- ously after each addition of the diazo solution. Then fit a reflux air- or water-condenser to the flask, and heat the latter on a boiling water-bath for 15 minutes to complete the reaction. Finally steam-distil the solution until no more oily benzonitrile passes over (usually until about 600 ml. of distillate have been collected).
