I am a chemistry student and am currently trying to do some organic
synthesis. I wish to purify my 2,5-Dimetoxyaniline as it appears to me
that my compound has been partially oxidised. Iwould greatly appreciate
if anybody can give me some information(/reference) regarding the above
Hope to get assistance as soon as possible.
I would think that you could form the hydrochloride salt of the desired
aniline and recrystallize it away from the oxidation product.
I would expect the first oxidation to occure at the nitrogen, to make
1-nitro-2,5-dimethoxybenzene. This would not form a hydrochloride salt and
should be fairly soluable in organic solvents.
So, why do you want to clean up your 2,5-DMA? What are you planning on
doing with the material?
