Synthesis of Substituted N-Alkylamines in Aqueous Media

Synthesis of N-substituted aminopentanes based on the reaction of the amines with 1-brompentanes (n-and iso-structure) and amino (bis-amino) hydroxy compounds via opening reaction of epoxides with amines environmentally friendly practices in water medium has been developed. Structure of obtained compounds by elemental analysis and IR-, 1H and 13C NMR-spectroscopy were confirmed.
