Reaction Scheme

4-nitroaniline (1 g, 7.24 mmol, 1.1 equiv.) and 2,5-hexanedione (0.77 mL, 6.58 mmol, 1 equiv.) were heated to 110 °C (oil bath temp.) for 4 hours. The reaction mixture was heterogeneous and no reaction was observed by TLC. Acetic Acid (3 mL) was added and the reaction mixture stirred at 110 ˚C for 16 hours. TLC showed reaction to be complete. The reaction mixture was allowed to cool and then pH changed to 5 by addition of an saturated aqueous solution of sodium hydrogen carbonate. Aqueous was extracted with EtOAc, washed with brine, dried (MgSO4), filtered and evaporated to give an orange brown oil that was purified by flash column chromatography over silica (5–20% EtOAc in Petroleum Ether) to obtain the desired product (1.22 g, 5.46 mmol, 83% yield) as a mustard coloured solid.
