Nitrile Reaction, possible Answer

Post  Thesci3141 on Sat Jan 08, 2011 10:56 am

Hello, I not sure yet if this will work for you. I am still working on it.Check this out in the meantime. The reduction of a nitrile to an amine is best accomplished by two reactions that I am aware of off the top of my head. 1. The reaction of a nitrile with lithium aluminum hydride followed with H2O. 2. The direct hydrogenation using H2 and a catalyst such as Platinum black or Palladium chloride,possibly in an apparatus called a Parr hydrogenation apparatus. Please, Check these out and speak with your instructor/teacher before attempting these experiments, there are dangers involved. Let me know what you find out. I am still investigating.
