In the first step alcohol group of benzoin is oxidized to ketone group forming benzil in presence of concentrated nitric acid. Nitration of aromatic ring is not occurring as sulphuric acid is totally absent synthesus the whole process. To prepare benzilic acid from benzoin.

Benzilic Acid Rearrangement

It is used in the manufacture of glycollate pharmaceuticals including clidinium, dilantin, and flutropium. Preparation of Benzil from Benzoin. Heat a mixture of benzoin 20 g and conc. Then pour the contents into ice cold water — ml with continuous shaking. Filter the product, wash with cold water, and recrystallize from ethanolm.


Preparation of Benzilic acid from Benzil. Dissolve KOH 35 g in water 70 ml by heating on hot plate and the cool to room temperature. Add 90 ml rectified spirit and 35 g benzil and reflux the content on a water bath till axid colour disappears min.

Pour the contents of the flask into a porcelain dish and cool in ice, collect the colorless needles of potassium benzilate.

Dissolve the solid in ml hot water and acidify with HCl slowly. Collect the solid benzillic acid and recrystallize from hot benzene 6 ml per gfroom.

Here limiting reagent is benzion; hence yield should be calculated from its amount. Therefore, 20 g benzion will form …….? X g benzilic acid.

Benzilic acid was synthesized and the percentage yield was found to be………. Microwave synthesis involves use of microwave radiation to carry out reaction at a higher rate.

It is an associative type of reaction, like Dials-Alder reaction pericyclic but more a free radical reaction The synthesis of barbituric acid is effected by condensation of diethyl malonate with urea in the presence Microwave ovens work by using microwaves about 12cm in length to force polarised molecules in food to Sulphanilamide can beprepared by taking acetanilide and treating it with excess of chlorosulphonic acid, which gives p-acetamidobenzenesulphonyl In the first step catalytic reduction of nitrobenzene is occurring forming N-phenylhydroxylamine in presence of zinc and Synthesis of aspirin from salicylic acid occurs by acetylation process in acidic medium.


Salicylic acid interacts with We Labmonk, some scientific researchers unite to design a platform for getting sources of different lab protocols and discuss various research related issues.
