1ml of an amine is dissolved in 2ml concentrated acid and 3ml water and cooled to 5oC for 5minutes .Acid solution of sodium nitrite in water added from a dropper while swimming using test tube with the mixture still in the reaction write the equation to show how the nitrious acid react in each case if

1.Amine were aliphatic

2.the Amine were aromatic

3.what differentiate the reaction of the nitrous acid with aliphatic and the aromatic amine

Expert's answer

The reaction of aromatic primary amines with nitrous acid gives aromatic diazonium salts.The reaction of aliphatic primary amines with nitrous acid gives aromatic diazonium salts which decompose to form a mixture of compounds containing alkyl chlorides, alkenes and alcohols. Usually, alcohols are the major products. The reactions are shown above.
