The starting-point of the following experiments was an accidental observation. Whilst investigating the chlorine-, bromine-, and nitro-derivatives of aniline, I had prepared a large quantity of phenylacetamide by the action of chloride of acetyl on aniline. From the hydrochlorate of aniline, abundantly produced as a by-product in this reaction, the aniline was recovered by treating the mother-liquors with hydrate of sodium. During the distillation, after the greater part of the aniline had…
