acid o

Crystals of 2-iodobenzoic acid that crystallized out from the reaction mixture.

2-iodobenzoic acid is a quite easy to prepare chemical, made from anthranilic acid by the Sandmeyer reaction. It starts with the diazotization of anthranilic acid followed by a diazo replacement. First anthranilic acid is treated with nitrous acid in order to convert the amino group into the diazo group. The diazo group is ejected, yielding a carbocation which is then attacked by highly nucleophilic I− anion.

From o-iodobenzoic acid several chemicals could be made, on of these and probably one of the most famous is the IBX and the Dess-Martin Periodane. 

Dess–Martin periodinane (DMP) is a chemical reagent used to oxidize primary alcohols to aldehydes and secondary alcohols to ketones. Compared to other reagents, it has several advantages that include milder conditions (room temperature, neutral pH), shorter reaction times, higher yields, simplified workups, high chemoselectivity, tolerance of sensitive functional groups, and a long shelf life. It is named after the American chemists Daniel Benjamin Dess and James Cullen Martin who developed the reagent in 1983.

It’s produced with a two step reaction, involving the oxidation of the iodine atom of the corresponding benzoic acid with Oxone or potassium-bromate and sulfuric acid, than treating the resulting IBX (2-iodoxybenzoic acid) with acetic anhydride. The only bad point in the synthesis, that the IBX and the DMP could explode if not treated properly.

Dream job: I’d honestly like to work at a record store, or a book store. Ha

When did you create your blog: I’m not sure, I believe it was in 2011 though

What do you post about: whatever I find appealing. Funny self depreciating jokes, pictures of Peter Steele, music, creepy demon chicks, sometimes I even post porn. Oops.

Why did you choose your URL: my url is a line from my favorite lamb of god song, another nail for your coffin. “Borrowing from peter to rape paul. No news is good news, but I’ve got some news for you. Fetch me a rope, lynch mob of one.” I want to change my url, honestly. But I’m too lazy

Time to tag people I’d like to learn more about, or just would enjoy reading their responses.

Got the pleasure of seeing Sasha Velour yesterday! This is in the middle of the long Drag’d out weekend I’m currently having – Friday was the premiere of Season 9, yesterday was this Sasha performance & tonight is the Hater’s Roast with Bob the Drag Queen, Trixie Mattel, Latrice Royal, Phi Phi O’Hara, Acid Betty, Kim Chi, Jinkx Monsoon & Ginger Minj.

      ‘ It’s stupid, I know, but P-Body and myself found this room full of mugs– like.. completely on accident too, we were actually trying to off each other out of boredom. He’d raise up one of the many ceramics in question– offering it slowly towards the other, turning it around so the printing could be read.

     “              Space!
               It’s got stars n’ shit.         ”         

     It is stupid, right? But the few personality cores he knew absolutely insisted this one would get a kick out of it– so might as well make the delivery and a possible new friend in the process. 

     ‘ I hear you like space– this is pretty jokey from what I can understand, but I still believe it could fit into the concept of “cute”, perhaps? I mean, it has little sketchy stars… although, I find that odd. Are stars actually shaped like that? When I look at them all I see are little… glowy-dots– not… these quintuple-pointed shapes.

anonymous asked:

For the 2 bands ask thing: Acid Bath or Type O Negative?

Uh, this is hard since I love both and I’m not sure which one to choose xD I think I’ll go with Type O Negative, but Acid Bath is/was such a gem and, unfortunately, I haven’t met many people who are fans or even familiar with them so far xP Anyway, the answer was more based on my current mood tbh, there might be a time when I’d choose AB instead xD

Anyway, thanks a lot for the ask :3 Feel free to send more if you want ^^
