The source of nitrogen in Gabriel synthesis of amines is _____________.
A. Sodium azide, NaN3

B. Sodium nitrite, NaNO2

C. Potassium cyanide, KCN

D. Potassium phthalimide, C6H4(CO)2NK+

Answer :

• Gabriel phthalimide synthesis is a chemical reaction that transforms primary alkyl halides into primary amines.


generally, potassium pthalamide is the reactant which reacts with ethanolic KOH at first and potassium salt of phthalimide forms, on heating with a certain alkyl halide (production of N-aikyl pthalimide) followed by hydrolysis in alkaline medium produces corresponding primary amine.


• Hence the source of nitrogen is C6H4(CO)2NK+
