Abstract:

The paper describes the preparation of a series of alkanolamines HO- R-NH2 bearing one or two cyanoethyl -C2H4CN groups on the amino nitrogen. Choice of reaction conditions and certain structural features determine whether mono- or disubstitution occurs, and when both products are formed, the mixture may be conveniently analysed by non-aqueous titration. All products have been characterised as p-nitrobenzoyl derivatives.
