The aromatic nitration of acetanilide is an exothermic reaction the temperature must be carefully controlled by chilling, stirring, and the slow addition of reagents acetanilide is first dissolved in the. In the nitration of acetanilide, 05g of crude acetanilide is used and reacts with a nitrating mix composed of 05ml of hno3 and 05ml of h2so4 to form p-nitroacetanilide the moles of acetanilide used are 00037 and its molecular weight is 13516. Nitration is an introduction of nitrogen dioxide into a chemical compound acid in the process the methyl benzoate was nitrated to form a methyl m-nitro benzoate the reagents were added very slow to avoid a vigrous reactions and the temperature was maintained low to avoid formation of dinitro product. And allowing to air dry, the mass of the acetanilide was determined to be 515 g the limiting reactant was determined to be aniline and 77 g of product was theoretically possible.
A) to synthesis acetanilide by reaction of aniline and acetic anhydride b) to purify acetanilide by crystallization method from water c) purity check by melting range. Product formed in competitive nitration of acetanilide and methyl benzoate methyl benzoate (550 mmol, 0609 ml) and acetanilide (550mmol, 061 ml) were subjected to a competitive nitration by nitric acid combined with sulfuric acid. The aromatic nitration of acetanilide is an exothermic reaction the temperature must be carefully controlled by chilling, stirring, and the slow addition of reagents acetanilide is first dissolved in the solvent, glacial acetic acid, by warming. Acetanilide has the least activating substituent (-nhcoch3) and will give a mono-substituted product carbonyl group double bond theory purpose the purpose of the experiment was to determine the relative activating effects of the subtituents on an aromatic ring, with aniline, acetanilide, phenol, and anisole, through melting point and tlc plating.

Acetanilide is purified by crystallization from hoe water forms white leafy crystals melting at 115° c, boiling at 295° c by boiling with concentrated hydrochloric acid, acetanilide is hydrolyzed to aniline and acetic acid. Nitration in this reaction, alongside para isomer, the meta isomer is also observed it is because the aniline molecule gets protonated in acidic medium to become anilinium ion which is meta directing. Electrophilic aromatic substitution reaction is as follows, where e is the electrophile: (note that in this reaction and in others that follow, only one of the six benzene hydrogens is shown explicitly to emphasize that one hydrogen is lost in the reaction. For example, the solubility of acetanilide in ethanol at 0 ºc is about 18g/100ml this means that if you drop 50 grams of acetanilide in 100 ml of ethanol at 0 ºc, about 18 grams will dissolve in the ethanol and the rest (~32g) will remain suspended in the solution.
The most common electrophilic aromatic substitution mechanism is the sigma complex mechanism, shown in figure 1 step 1: + ch h h e e + hc e h e + ch + step 2: + ch h be e + hb figure 1: electrophilic substitution at an aromatic ring occurs by formation of a sigma complex (step 1) and subsequent loss of a proton to a base (step 2. A mechanism for electrophilic substitution reactions of benzene a two-step mechanism has been proposed for these electrophilic substitution reactions in the first, slow or rate-determining, step the electrophile forms a sigma-bond to the benzene ring, generating a positively charged benzenonium intermediate. Acetanilide is an odourless solid chemical of leaf or flake-like appearance it is also known as n -phenylacetamide , acetanil , or acetanilid , and was formerly known by the trade name antifebrin.
Practical one anmchunu 214513535 practical report 1 nitration of acetanilide aim: to observe how an aromatic electrophilic substitution reaction takes place through the nitration of acetanilide, as in, how a hydrogen on a carbon chain is replaced with a nitro group. Nitration of aniline in conc h 2 so 4 and hno 3, we can understand the formation of both para and meta nitro aniline but what is the reason for the poor yield of ortho nitro aniline. The nitration of benzene this page gives you the facts and a simple, uncluttered mechanism for the electrophilic substitution reaction between benzene and a mixture of concentrated nitric acid and concentrated sulphuric acid. Step 2: nitration of acetanilide in this step you first form the nitronium ion in situ by dehydration of nitric acid sulfuric acid is the dehydrating agent sulfuric acid is the dehydrating agent the nitronium ion is a very powerful electrophile and will react with the π−electrons of the aromatic ring of aniline.
Nitration of benzene firstly involves the formation of a very powerful electrophile, the nitronium ion, which is linear this occurs following the interaction of two strong acids, sulfuric and nitric acid. Mechanism of nitration of acetanilide chemistry 220 practical report practical 1 title: nitration of acetanilide aim : to observe how an aromatic electrophilic substitution reaction takes place via the nitration of acetanilide ie how hydrogen on a carbon chain is replaced with a nitro group. 2 procedure - nitration of acetanilide place 65 g of acetanilide in a 125-ml erlenmeyer flask, add 10 ml of glacial acetic acid (caution: strong irritant), and warm the flask on a steam bath until the acetanilide dissolves. Table of reagents amt used molecular weight (g/mol) melting point (°c) density (g/ml) acetanilide 0502 g 13517 113-115 concentrated h2so4 0275 ml 9808 184 concentrated hno3 0275 ml 6301 142 o-nitroaniline 13813 73-76 m-nitroaniline 13813 112-114 p-nitroaniline 13813 149-151 hcl 25 ml 3646-26 069 ammonium hydroxide 25 ml 1703 safety information - concentrated sulfuric and nitric acids are corrosive and can cause severe burns.
Nitrating acetanilide and methyl benzoate: electrophilic aromatic substitution the electrophilic aromatic substitution reaction is the attack of a benzene ring on an electrophilic species resulting in the substitution of a proton with a functional group. Similar to nitration because in general, we create the electrophile by protonating + acts as the electrophile in the electrophilic aromatic substitution mechanism. In this lesson, we will get a detailed overview of the hydrolysis reaction acetanilide undergoes under acidic conditions the primary focus will be on the mechanistic steps and an explanation. 1 h nmr spectrum of acetanilide, cdcl3 the third step in synthesizing p-nitroaniline is nitration of acetanilide using a mixture of concentrated sulfuric and nitric acids to obtain nitroacetanilide (equation 3.
