sulfonation amino fenol
« on: April 05, 2015, 08:32:43 AM »
i reacted amino fenol with THF as a solvent then mixed with CS2 and Na2CO3, stirring at room temperature for 24 hours, but it doesnt work. Cause when i checked with TLC, the spot same like amino fenol spot.

anyone can tell me why?
is there possibility bcause CS2 has boiling point about 46 celcius and evaporated at room temperature so it doesnt work?
then what should i do so i can the sulfonation result?

im so glad if you can help me
sorry if my english not good enough because english isnt my first language
thankyou :)

If it had reacted, the product would be insoluble. I think you can run this reaction in water.
