Abstract: 1i This invention concerns a method for preparing nitriles. Patricia Tambarussi Baraldi, Timothy Noël, Qi Wang, Volker Hessel. Aliphatic nitriles are prepared by treatment of alkyl halides with sodium cyanide in a solvent that will dissolve both reactants.
From Nitriles and Amides. Unfortunately, selective reduction of a nitrile in the presence of an aldehyde is not possible. The Mechanism of Nitrile Reduction by DIBAL.
1-(3-Dimethylaminopropyl)-3-ethylcarbodiimidehydrochloride (EDCI) is a very useful reagent for the preparation of nitriles in good yields under neutral conditions.

More particularly, it relates to a process for preparing nitriles by dehydrating compounds containing an oximino group to yield compounds containing a cyano or nitrile group in the place thereof. The scope of nickel boride mediated reduction of nitriles has been extended further to allow the preparation of Boc protected amines via a mild catalytic process.
By using Grignard Reagents
Nitriles are one of the most important precursors in organic synthesis. ChemInform Abstract: Direct Preparation of Nitriles from Carboxylic Acids in Continuous Flow.. ChemInform 2014, 45 (11) , no-no. Nitriles, RC≡N, react with Grignard reagents or organolithium reagents to give ketones. DIBAL is a milder reducing agent than LiAlH 4 and it can be used for selective reduction of esters and nitriles to aldehydes.. The strongly nucleophilic organometallic reagents add to the C≡Nbond in a similar fashion to that seen for aldehydes and ketones. 2001 Nov 30;66(24):7945-50. doi: 10.1021/jo010635w. Google has not performed a legal analysis and makes no representation as to the accuracy of the status listed.) In order to stop the reaction at the amide stage, mild reaction conditions are used. Hydrolysis of Nitriles (Cyanides) Just like grignard synthesis , nitrile synthesis also increases the length of carbon chain. Preparation of 5-substituted 1H-tetrazoles from nitriles in water. It is noteworthy that the toxicity of this procedure is greatly reduced due to its catalytic nature in nickel(II) chloride used in combination with excess sodium borohydride. The conversion of nitriles to silylated primary amines was achieved in the presence of TMDS as the reducing agent, a catalytic amount of Co(OPiv) 2, and an isocyanide ligand.
The reaction again starts with a hydride addition to the C-N triple bond forming an iminium anion. J Org Chem. Reaction type: Nucleophilic Acyl Substitution then Nucleophilic Addition. Amides are prepared by the hydrolysis of nitriles and then is converted to acids in the presence of catalysts (H + or OH-1). Nitriles are produced from carboxylic acids and ammonia utilizing an intermediate nitrogenous base-carboxylic acid complex by reacting said complex with ammonia at a temperature of from about 200° to about 800°C.
