Hydrogenation of 2-ethylanthraquinone over raney nickel

  • 57 Accesses

Summary

  1. 1.

    A study was made of the hydrogenation of 2-ethylanthraquinone at 20° in dioxane, an alcohol-dioxane mixture, and N,N-dimethylformamide in presence of Raney nickel.

  2. 2.

    In N,N-dimethylformamide addition of only one molecular proportion of hydrogen occurs. In dioxane and an alcohol-dioxane mixture the aromatic side nuclei of 2-ethylanthraquinone are also hydrogenated at an appreciable rate.

  3. 3.

    With increase in the amount of catalyst its specific activity in the hydrogenation reaction increases. This behavior is probably associated with the chemical nonuniformity of hydrogen in a highly active catalyst.
