Abstract : Three alternate synthetic routes to 4-aminobenzil, a component used in the synthesis of the high-temperature amide- and imidequinoxaline copolymers, were investigated. Catalytic hydrogenation of 4-nitrobenzil was found to give good (60-65% vs. 25% for present method) yields of 4-aminobenzil, and, thus, represents the most successful route. (Author)
