Reaction information

*Reaction file type CDX

To a stirred solution of methylamine (66 % solution in IMS, 30.0 mL, 787 mmol), 1-[1-(bromomethyl)vinyl]benzene (5.00 g, 26.0 mmol) was added dropwise, and heated at 44 °C for 18 hours before quenching with a saturated solution of NaHCO3 (30.0 mL).  The product was extracted into diethyl ether (3 x 50 mL), the combined organic layer washed with water (3 x 50 mL), brine (50.0 mL), dried over MgSO4, filtered and the solvent removed under reduced pressure.  Column chromatography (SiO2, 0-100 % Et2O:petroleum including 5 % Et3N) and Kugelrohr distillation (7.0 mm Hg, 135 °C) afforded the title compound (451 mg, 3.1 mmol, 61 %). 

*Yield (%)  61
