Abstract

Using thermochemical parameters, the reaction course and the products of the reactions between aniline and formaldehyde using molar ratios of 4 : 1, 2 : 1 and 1 : 1 in the presence of acid medium have been analysed. Data on \triangle $H^O_f$ and \triangle $H^O_r$ were obtained experimentally by adopting combustion and solution calorimetry: theoretical data were obtained by Benson's thermochemical approach. The calculated values for the different possible structures have been compared with the experimental values of the reaction products. Thus, 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane has been deduced as the product for the 4 : 1 and 2 : 1 aniline: formaldehyde reactions and poly-anhydro-p-aminobenzylalcohol for the 1 : 1 reaction. The structure of the products were further confirmed by spectral methods. Inferences from thermochemical data were found to agree with spectral information as well as that reported by other authors
