    • Abstract


      The reaction between aniline and methyl iodide has been studied at four different temperatures in 95% ethyl alcohol, acetone, nitrobenzene and carbon tetrachloride. The complications arising from progressive alkylations as well as from the crystallisation have been minimised under the experimental conditions in the initial stages. The observed changes in the rate constants and in the Arrhenius parameters are discussed.
