      DiEthylamine Via ethyliodide +NH3(g)  Bookmark   

CH3CH2I + NH3(g) -> CH3C2NH2 +HI(g)
Can simply bubbling anhydrous NH3 into chilled Ethyliodide produce a mixture of amines. which could be seperated by fractional distillation.  The Bps seem far enough off

ethylamine  Bp. 16.6
Diethylamine Bp. 55.5
Triethylamine Bp. 88.9
 would the HI created by the reaction interfer with the rxn at all.  Is there any rxn conditions that would yeild a larger portion of the desired secondary amine.  There was some discussion a while back on it but it was not really discussed much.  Swim believes osmium had mentioned the Rxn but did not go into detail.

My merck tells me that EtOH could also be used.

EtOH would be the starting material for the ethyliodide.
