|Getting rid of Butal-OH from Methylamine?||Bookmark|
Is it a good idea to rinse methylamine.Hcl with acetone after recrystalisation with Butal alcohol? Will any leftover alcohol interfere with Al/Hg or Borohydride reductions?
Mayby I need to vacuum dessicate longer. I can't stand that Butal stench. Always knocks me out when opening the dessicator.
Instead of acetone, wash with ether, CH2Cl2 or CHCl3. MeNH2.HCl is both inert to and insoluble in them all.
Acetone may form an imine with MeNH2.HCl so I don't reccommend that. Aside from smelling bad, butanol won't interfer the reductive amination.
