CBSE Class 12 Chemistry Revision Notes for Chapter 13 Amines
When hydrogen atom in ammonia molecule, is replaced by aryl or alkyl group, amines are obtained. Talking about the structure of amines the nitrogen atom in amine is trivalent. Based on the number of hydrogen atoms that are replaced by aryl or alkyl group, amines are classified into three types:
- Primary amines
- Secondary amines
- Tertiary amines
Different methods of preparing amines:
- Reduction of nitro compounds
- Gabriel phthalimide synthesis
- Ammonolysis of alkyl halides
- Reduction of amides
- Hoffmann bromamide degradation reaction
- Reduction of nitriles
We have also provided links to some of the topics related to this chapter. You can learn more about the topics before you start with the revision.
