Storage method


Synthesis method

1. Preparation method:

In a 1L reaction bottle equipped with a stirrer, thermometer and reflux condenser, add 50g of benzophenone (2) (0.275moPl), 500mL (95%) of ethanol, 50g of sodium hydroxide and 50g of zinc powder (0.76mol ), stir vigorously, and slowly raise the temperature to about 70°C. After 3 hours, lower the temperature, filter, and wash the filter residue twice with hot 95% ethanol (the remaining zinc powder cannot become dry to avoid catching fire). Pour the filtrate into 2L ice water and acidify it with 100mL concentrated hydrochloric acid to precipitate a white solid. After suction filtration and drying in the air, 49g of crude product benzyl alcohol was obtained, mp65°C. Recrystallize with 50 mL of hot ethanol, cool in an ice-salt bath, filter the precipitated colorless solid, and dry to obtain pure benzyl alcohol (1) 36g, mp68°C. Some products can be recovered from the mother liquor. Note: ① Benzophenone can also be prepared by reducing benzophenone with sodium borohydride in 95% ethanol, with a yield of about 90%. [1]
