Principle: In the first step alcohol group of benzoin is oxidized to ketone group forming benzil in presence of concentrated nitric acid. Nitration of aromatic ring is not occurring as sulphuric acid is totally absent in the whole process. Aim: To prepare benzilic acid from benzoin. Step Use: It is used in the manufacture of glycollate pharmaceuticals including clidinium, dilantin, and flutropium. HNO 3.

Synthesis of benzilic acid from benzoin

This reaction receives its name from the reaction of benzil with potassium hydroxide to form benzilic acid. First performed by Justus von Liebig in , [1] it is the first reported example of a rearrangement reaction. The reaction has been shown to work in aromatic , semi-aromatic, aliphatic , and heterocyclic substrates. The reaction works best when the ketone functional groups have no adjacent enolizable protons, as this allows aldol condensation to compete. The reaction is formally a ring contraction when used on cyclic diketones. It has been found that aryl groups more readily migrate than alkyl groups, and that aryl groups with electron-withdrawing groups migrate the fastest. The reaction is a representative of 1,2-rearrangements.
