Summary

  1. 1.

    An investigation was made of the “nittilation” of butyl alcohol with ammonia in presence of various samples of nickel-alumina catalyst at 240–400° under atmospheric pressure.

     
  2. 2.

    The most effective catalyst for the nitrilation of butyl alcohol consisted of 3% of reduced nickel supported by active alumina. At 300° in presence of this catalyst the yield of butyronitrile was 81.5%.

     
  3. 3.

    Under similar conditions in presence of a cobalt-nickel (on active charcoal) catalyst 1-hexene gave only 3.8–6.7% of the corresponding nitrile.
