Question

Explain basic nature of amines.

Solution

Nitrogen atom of amines contains a lone pair of electrons which can be donated. Thus, amines act as Lewis bases. Amines are Lowry-Bronsted bases as they accept a proton. Thus, amines act as bases and nucleophiles.

eg.

a. The reaction of ethylamine with dilute hydrochloric acid results in the formation
of ethyl ammonium chloride.

`CH_3-CH_2-NH_2+HCl⇌CH_3-CH_2NH_3^+Cl^-`

Ethylamine                                 Ethyl ammonium
(Ethanamine)                                 chloride

b. The reaction of aniline with dilute hydrochloric acid results in the formation of
anilinium chloride.
