(d)Acetyl chloride reacts with benzylamine to form an amide.(e)Acetic anhydride also gives an amide with benzylamine.(f)Primary amines react with ketones to give imines.(g)These reaction conditions lead to reduction of the imine formed in part (f). The overall reac-tion is reductive amination.(h)Amines are nucleophilic and bring about the opening of epoxide rings.(i)In these nucleophilic ring-opening reactions the amine attacks the less sterically hindered car-bon of the ring.(j)With excess methyl iodide, amines are converted to quaternary ammonium iodides.C6H5CH2NH2BenzylamineC6H5CH2N(CH3)3 IBenzyltrimethylammoniumiodideMethyliodide3CH3IC6H5CH2NH2C6H5CH2NHCH2CHCH3Benzylamine1-(N-Benzylamino)-2-propanol1,2-EpoxypropaneH2C
