Physical Properties:

(a) It is a colourless inflammable liquid. It's boiling point is 19ºC.

(b) It has fishy ammonical odour.

(c) It is highly soluble in water. Its aqueous solution is basic in nature and turns red limus blue.

The solubility in water is due to hydrogen bonding with water moelcules.

ChemicalProperties:

(i) Basic nature : It is more basic than ammonia. Following reactions prove its basic nature.

(a) It forms ethyl ammonium hydroxide when dissolved in water.

(d) It's hydrochloride, like ammonium chloride, forms double salts with PtCl4 and AuCl3.

These double salts decompose on heating to pure metal and this method is used to determine the molecular mass of amines.

(ii) Reaction with alkyl halides (Alkylation) :

Ethylamine reacts with alkyl halides and form secondary, tertiary amines and quaternary ammonium salt.

(vii) Hofmann's mustard oil reaction : Carbon disulphide reacts with ethylamine in presence of HgCl2 to form ethyl isothiocyanate which has a mustard oil like smell.

C2H5NH2 + CS2  + HgCl2 Physical and Chemical Properties of Amines - Amines, Class 12, Chemistry | EduRev Notes C2H5N = C = S + 2HCl

General Chemical Properties of Aromatic Amines:

Reaction with nitrous acid:

1. Primary Amines : Primary amines react with nitrous acid to produce diazonium ion as follows.

ArNH2 + HNO2 Physical and Chemical Properties of Amines - Amines, Class 12, Chemistry | EduRev Notes Ar — N+ ≡ N :

R — NH2  + HNO2 Physical and Chemical Properties of Amines - Amines, Class 12, Chemistry | EduRev Notes R — N+ ≡ N

But the diazonium ions of aliphatic amines are very unstable and produce carbocation immediately, which can produce different products.

R — N+ ≡ NPhysical and Chemical Properties of Amines - Amines, Class 12, Chemistry | EduRev Notes R+  (Carbocation)

Ring Reactions of Aromatic Amines:

NH2 — NHR and —NR2 strongly activate the benzene ring toward electrophilic substitution.

1. Haogenation : For monohalogenation, —NH2 is first acetylated, because

Physical and Chemical Properties of Amines - Amines, Class 12, Chemistry | EduRev Notes

is only moderately activating and is o and p-director in nature.

2. Sulfonation :

Physical and Chemical Properties of Amines - Amines, Class 12, Chemistry | EduRev Notes

The dipolar ion structure of sulfanilic acid account for its (a) high melting point, (b) insolubility in H2O and organic solvents, (c) solubility in aqueous NaOH, (d) insolubility in aqeous HCl.

Physical and Chemical Properties of Amines - Amines, Class 12, Chemistry | EduRev Notes

will not exists as a dipolar ino since, -COOH is too weakly acidic to transfer an H to the weakly basic -NH2 attached to the electron withdrawing benzene ring. When attached to an aliphatic C, the NH2 is sufficiently basic to accept H- from COOH.

(i) The Hinsberg Test

Ths test can be used to demonstrate whether an amine is primary, secondary or tertiary. Primary amines react with benzenesulfonyl chloride to form N-substituted benzenesulfonamides. These, in turn, undergo acid-base reactions with the excess potassium hydroxide to form water - soluble potassium salt. Acidification of this solution will, cause the water-soluble in the next stage, cause the water-insoluble N-substituted sulfonamide to precipitate.

Secondary amies react with benzenesulfonyl chloride in aqueous potassium hydryoxide to form insoluble, N - N-disubstituted sulfonamides that precipitate after the first stage. N3N-

Disubstituted sulfonamides do not dissolve in aqueous potassium hydroxide.

Physical and Chemical Properties of Amines - Amines, Class 12, Chemistry | EduRev Notes

If the amine is a tertiary amine and if it is water insoluble, no apparent change will take place in the mixture as we shake it with benzenesulfonyl choride and aqueous KOH. When we acidify the mixture, the tertiary amine dissolves because it forms a water soluble salt.
