Storage method


Synthesis method

1. Add 1.4kg (8.3mol) p-bromotoluene and 10mL PCl3 to the flask and heat to 120℃ with stirring. Control the 115~125℃ and slowly add 1280g for about 3h. (430,8mol) bromonaphthalene, after adding, continue to keep stirring for 0.5h, let it stand and cool to below 10℃, the crystallization will be complete in 4~5h, pour off the uncrystallized part, melt the crystal, leave it at 20℃ overnight, and pour it off again The uncrystallized part was obtained, 0.94kg was distilled under reduced pressure, and the 120~124℃ (1.3~1.6kPa) fraction was collected to obtain 900g with a white appearance. The yield is about 45%. Dissolve 900g of the above steamed product in 700mL methanol, cool to room temperature (20°C) with stirring, filter out, rinse once with a little ice-cold methanol, and air-dry to obtain 810g solid with a purity of 99.2% (GC).
2. Preparation method:

Pre-installed thermometer, reflux condenser (with calcium chloride on top In the reaction bottle of the drying tube (the drying tube is connected to the hydrogen bromide absorption device) and the dropping funnel, add 140g (0.83mol) of p-bromotoluene (2) and 3mL of PCl, heat to about 120°C with stirring, and slowly add bromine dropwise. 128g (0.8mol), control the temperature of the reaction solution between 115 and 125°C, and complete the addition in about 3 hours. After the addition was completed, the reaction was continued to stir for 0.5 h. Let cool to below 10°C and leave overnight. Decant off the uncrystallized liquid. Melt the crystals, place at 20°C overnight, and then pour off the uncrystallized liquid. Distill under reduced pressure and collect the fraction at 120~125℃/1.3kPa to obtain 89g of p-bromobenzyl bromide (1), with a yield of 45%. [1]
