Preparation of 2-Phenylethyl bromide: it is prepared by reaction of phenylethanol with hydrogen bromide. Firstly, phenylethanol is heated to 110 °C and hydrogen bromide is slowly passed into for refluxing. After reaction, the reaction mixture is cooled, washed with water, 10% sodium carbonate solution and water by turns. At last, product is obtained by drying with anhydrous potassium carbonate, vacuum distillation and collecting distillate at 97-99 °C. The yield is about 90%.
Uses of 2-Phenylethyl bromide: it is used to produce 1-phenethyl-piperidine by reaction with piperidine. The reaction occurs with solvent toluene and other condition of heating for 24 hours. The yield is about 36%.
