Illustrate the following reaction giving suitable example in each case:Gabriel phthalimide synthesis
Write the reactions involved Gabriel phthalimide synthesis
Gabriel Phthalimide Synthesis Used for the preparation of primary amine
Reactions involved in the preparation of primary amine from phthalimide are as follows:
Aromatic primary amines cannot be prepared by this process because aryl halides do not undergo nucleophilic substitution with the anion formed by phthalimide.
