Phenyl nitropropene to phenyl propane amine
« on: December 24, 2018, 05:24:44 PM »

Hi all,

I was wondering if you can help me figure out the correct reaction scheme. We start off phenyl nitropropene [O-][N+](=O)/C(=C/c1=cc=cc=c1)C
and add isopropanol to this. So then I think we get phenyl propanedinone. CC(=O)C(=O)C1=CC=CC=C1
 and amino propanol CC(CN)O And hydrogen. Then under influence of aluminum amalgam, sodium. Hydroxide and acetic acid I think we get propanioc acid CCC(=O)O and
amphetamine NC(CC1=CC=CC=C1)C


Is this correct? I don't understand why we need acetic acid aluminum amalgam and sodium hydroxide.

Thanks.

Is this your homework or you are actually planning to synthesis this chemical.

By the way, amphetamine is a controlled drug.
It could be converted to Methamphetamine very easily.

As a chemist with integrity, I don't want to talk too much about this.

Does this matter? Information is free and legal, production is not. Anyway I do not understand why you as a chemist don't  want to Talk about this. This is chemistry no? Integrity has nothing to do with it. Being honest and being complete are far from it.

Discussing a drug making procedure puts us at risk so that is why the discussion on those substances is limited on this board. You are basicaly asking us how to make the controlled substance AND explain why do you need the specific reagents. Im dont want to strictly imply that you are in drug making but your questions raise some flags.

I totally agree. However it's still my own responsibility to act on it. Knowledge isn't punishable. If people are taught how to mold metal and know how to make knives, wouldn't that be illegal as well by your logic?

But of course I will respect the board rules. And I appreciate you taking the time to explain to me how it puts you at risk =) this wasn't my intention.

Locked topic for discussing controlled substance synthesis. Just not something we do here. Plenty of other places on the internet will entertain this.

May delete it later.
