    Abstract: A method of producing xylylenediamine by the hydrogenation of dicyanobenzene obtained by the ammoxidation of xylene in a high yield while prolonging the catalyst life. In the method, a molten dicyanobenzene from which compounds having a boiling point lower than that of dicyanobenzene have been removed but compounds having a boiling point higher than that of dicyanobenzene are not removed is dissolved in a solvent containing liquid ammonia. By this dissolution, at least part of dicyanobenzene polymers precipitates as insolubles. The precipitates are removed by a solid-liquid separation. By subjecting the resulting solution containing the dicyanobenzene polymers in a reduced amount to hydrogenation, xylylenediamine is produced in a high yield and the life time of hydrogenation catalyst is prolonged.

In the event that crystallization does not occur upon lowering the temperature of the medium, it has been discovered that gentle heating of the organic medium results in crystallization of the acid salt. It has also been discovered that higher temperature crystallization has been provided by removal of methamphetamine from the composition. The crystalline benzphetamine hydrochloride can then be isolated by typical liquid/solid separation means such as filtration or centrifugation.

  • Patent number: 6476268
    Abstract: N-Benzylamines are prepared by a process in which (i) in a first step, a benzaldehyde is reacted with a primary amine to give the imine and (ii) in a second step, the imine is hydrogenated with hydrogen in the presence of a catalyst containing one or more metals of groups 8 to 10 of the Periodic Table of the Elements to give the N-benzylamine, wherein the iminization (i) is carried out in a water-miscible solvent and the resulting water of reaction is not removed, and the hydrogenation (ii) is carried out in the imine solution obtained in the iminization (i) and containing water of reaction.
