MECHANOCHEMICAL CHLORINATION OF ACETANILIDE
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
We described herein a solvent-free synthesis of 4-chloroacetanilide both under hand grinding and mechanical grinding of stoichiometric amounts of acetanilide with trichloroisocyanuric acid. The synthetic approach was developed in the context of undergraduate organic chemistry and is the greener preparation of this compound already described.
