Amines are derivatives of ammonia and they are obtained by the replacement of H-atoms with aryl or alkyl groups. Based on the number of H-atoms replaced from ammonia, amines are classified into three groups: Primary, Secondary and Tertiary amines. Structure of primary amines is$\dpi{80} R-NH_2$, the structure of secondary amines are $\dpi{80} R_2NH$ or $\dpi{80} R-NHR^'$ and the structure of tertiary amines are  $\dpi{80} R_3N,\:\: R_2NHR^' \:\:$  or $\dpi{80} RNR^'R''$.

## Solutions to In-Text Questions Ex 13.1  to 13.9

(i)

N atom is directly connected with only one C atom, so it is a primary aromatic amine

(ii)

In this compound N atom directly connected with 3 carbon atoms. So, it is a tertiary aromatic amine

(iii)    $\inline (C_{2}H_{5})_{2}CHNH_{2}$

$\inline (C_{2}H_{5})_{2}CHNH_{2}$

Here N atom directly connected with only one C atom. So it is a primary aliphatic amine.

Question

(iv)   $\inline (C_{2}H_{5})_{2}NH$

$\inline (C_{2}H_{5})_{2}NH$

In structure, we can clearly see that N is directly connected with 2 carbon atom. so, it is a secondary amine.

$\inline C_{4}H_{11}N$

different isomeric amines corresponding to the molecular formula, $\inline C_{4}H_{11}N$

(i )      $CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}NH_{2}$                                   (v)  $CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}NHCH_{3}$

(ii)                                          (vi)

(iii)                                            (vii)

(iv)                                                    (viii)

Question

IUPAC name of all the isomers-

 $CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}NH_{2}$ Butanamine Butan-2-amine 2-Methylpropanamine N-Methylpropan-2-amine 2-Methylpropan-2-amine N,N-Dimethylethanamine $CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}NHCH_{3}$ N-Methylpropanamine N-Ethylethanamine

Question

 $CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}NH_{2}$ Butanamine (Chain isomerism + position isomerism) Butan-2-amine (chain isomerism + position isomerism) 2-Methylpropanamine (chain isomerism) N-Methylpropan-2-amine (position isomerism + metamerism) 2-Methylpropan-2-amine (chain isomerism) N,N-Dimethylethanamine $CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{2}CH_{2}NHCH_{3}$ N-Methylpropanamine (position isomerism) N-Ethylethanamine (no isomerism)

Question 13.3(i)      How will you convert

Benzene into aniline

Nitration of benzene gives nitrobenzene. And now reduce the nitro group by catalytic hydrogenation.

Question 13.3(ii)     How will you convert

Benzene into N, N-dimethylaniline

Nitration of benzene gives nitrobenzene and after catalytic hydrogenation of nitrobenzene, it gives aniline. Aniline on reacting with two moles of chloromethane to form N, N-dimethylaniline.

Question 13.3(iii)    How will you convert

$\inline Cl-(CH_{2})_{4}-Cl$   into $\inline hexan-1$ ,$\inline 6-diamine?$

ON reacting the given reactant with ethanolic sodium cyanide, the CN molecules replace both chlorine atom. And after that catalytic hydrogenation, we get our desired product. (reduce the CN to $-CH_{2}NH_{2}$ in both sides)

Question

$\inline C_{2}H_{5}NH_{2},$  $\inline C_{6}H_{5}NH_{2},$  $\inline NH_{3},$  $\inline C_{6}H_{5}CH_{2}NH_{2}$   and   $(C_{2}H_{5})_{2}NH$

Considering the inductive effect, solvation effect and steric hindrance of the alkyl group which decides the basic strength of alkylamines. order of basic strength in ethyl substituted amine is-

$NH_{3}

and order in benzene substituted ring-

$C_{6}H_{5}NH{2}

Due to the -R effect of benzene $C_{6}H_{5}NH{2}$ has less electron density than ammonia. So, the final order is -

$C_{6}H_{5}NH{2}

Question

$\inline C_{2}H_{5}NH_{2},$ $\inline (C_{2}H_{5})_{2}NH,$ $\inline (C_{2}H_{5})_{3}N,$ $\inline C_{6}H_{5}NH_{2}$

$C_{6}H_{5}NH_{2}

On considering the inductive effect, solvation effect and steric hindrance of the alkyl group the increasing order of basicity in ethyl as a substituted group is shown above.

Question

(iii)  $\inline CH_{3}NH_{2},$ $\inline (CH_{3})_{2}NH,$ $\inline (CH_{3})_{3}N,$ $\inline C_{6}H_{5}NH_{2},$ $\inline C_{6}H_{5}CH_{2}NH_{2}.$

On considering the inductive effect, solvation effect and steric hindrance of the alkyl group which decides the basic strength of alkyl amines in the aqueous state. The order of basic strength in case of methyl substituted amines are -

$C_{6}H_{5}NH_{2}

Question

$\inline CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{2}NH_{2}+HCl\rightarrow$

The above-given reaction is an acid-base reaction. so salt is formed.

$\inline CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{2}NH_{2}+HCl\rightarrow$$CH_{3}(CH_{2})_{2}NH_{3}^{+}Cl^{-}$

Question

$\inline (C_{2}H_{5})_{3}N+HCl\rightarrow$

$\inline (C_{2}H_{5})_{3}N+HCl\rightarrow$$(C_{2}H_{5})_{3}N^{+}HCl^{-}$

It is an acid-base reaction, so the N will accept H from $HCl$ and form a salt.

With the excess of methyl iodide in the presence of sodium carbonate solution ($Na_{2}CO_{3}$), N, N-dimethylaniline produces N, N, N-trimethyl anilinium carbonate.
