Synthesis method

The following two process routes can be used. (1) Obtained from the reaction between ethyl acetoacetate and o-methoxyaniline. First, heat the ethanol solution of dry xylene, ethyl acetoacetate and triethanolamine to a slight boil, steam out part of the xylene solution (temperature is between 118-120°C), slowly heat it to 137-140°C, and collect the Cool the mixture of toluene and ethanol to 5-7°C, filter and crystallize, wash with a little xylene to obtain crude product, and then recrystallize with ethanol. (2) Reaction of o-methoxyaniline and diketene: add 500 parts of water to the reaction kettle. Add 0.02 part of triphenylphosphine and 0.1 part of N,N-dimethylaniline under vigorous stirring. Within 45 minutes, 90 parts of diketene (95.6% purity) and 1123 parts of o-methoxyaniline were added through two lines (inserted into the solution) under stirring (both were added at equimolar speeds). Cool sufficiently to keep the reaction temperature at 20°C. After the addition reaction is completed, stir for another 1 hour to obtain a slurry product. Cool it to 10°C, filter and dry to obtain 192 parts of white o-methoxyacetoacetanilide, with a yield of 93% and a purity of 99.5%. In industrial production, o-methoxyaniline and diketene can also be condensed in ethanol medium at 20-25°C.
