Abstract

The Hoffman reaction of an amide with a hypohalite to give a primary amine in excellent yields is the basis of many syntheses in organic chemistry. This project is concerned with the study of the action of sodium hypobromite and sodium hypochloride on adipamide. Isolation of reaction products, if possible, identification of reaction products, if possible, identification of the products, and determination of the yield of the reaction were desired. It was hope that a diamine, putresecine, would result from this reaction, and therefore the steps in isolation of the products were carried out with this in view.
