Required: Ethyl acetoacetate, 32 g. (32 ml.); acetaldehyde-ammonia, 10 g. (Note. The aldehyde-ammonia should preferably be fresh material: the quantity should be increased to 15 g. if an old sample, which has formed brown sticky lumps, is employed.) Gently warm a mixture of 32 g. (32 ml.) of ethyl acetoacetate and 10 g. of aldehyde-ammonia in a 400 ml. beaker by direct heating on a gauze, stirring the mixture carefully with a thermo-meter. As soon as the reaction starts, remove the heating, and replace it when the reaction slackens, but do not allow the temperature of the mixture to exceed 100-110°: the reaction is rapidly completed. Add to the mixture about twice its volume of 2A r-hydrochloric acid, and stir the mass until the deposit
