Simple, novel synthesis of furfurylamine from furfural by one-pot reductive amination in water using zinc metal

Written by sctunisie no comments

A novel, environmentally eco-friendly and high yielding method for the preparation of furfurylamine by one-pot reductive amination of furfural is reported. The reaction is carried out using hydroxylammonium chloride as amination agent and cheap zinc powder as reducer in the presence of zinc chloride and ammonium chloride. This practical procedure has been carried out in water and in neat conditions.
