Synthesis of N-Benzenesulfonyl-p-Coumaramide from p-Coumaric Acid

Nasriadi Dali, Arniah Dali


N-Benzenesulfonyl-p-Coumaramide has been synthesized from  p-qumarid acid. This research aimed to synthesized  N-Benzenesulfonyl-p-Coumaramidefrom p-qumarid acid. Targeted coumpound obtained  from two steps reaction. Whice were amidation and asilation. Shynthesized product was identified and characterized by melting point, thing Layer Chromatography analysis, FTIR Spectrhophotometer,  1H-NMR, dan 13C-NMR. The result showed the obtained N-Benzenesulfonyl-p-Coumaramide was white solid ( yield 78.58 %) with melting point was 145-147 oC  and KLT (SiO2, n-hexane : cloroform = 6 : 4 v/v, Rf = 0.45).


Keywords: Acylation, Amidation, Coumaramide, N-benzenesulfonyl-p-coumaramide, p-coumaric acid
