Amine synthesis
« on: September 11, 2006, 03:42:27 PM »
Is there any way too synthesize amines iwth household chemicals/equipment? Of all the ways i figured out how to do it it involves chemicals i don't have acess to. So amines, possible way to make it at home or does it need to be done only with lab chemicals that you don't find in hardware stores(haloalkanes would be easiest, but don't have acess to those) ?

I'm not sure about that, but you could try to use ammonia solution and ethanol.
However I doubt that it is possilble to achieve at home :P

I sincerely doubt it.

By the way, is there a particular amine you are interested in synthesizing?

No, any amine will do.

I believe that ammonia forms a dark blue nitrogen compound when it´s mixed with phenol, NaOH, NaClO and HCl (of course the mixture is not so simple).

This method is used to analyze ammonia in drink and waste water.
