The product ratio of N-ethylsaccharin to O-ethylsaccharin that occurred due to alkylation with iodoethane at 80 oC was determined to be 81.5% to 18.5%, respectively, based on an analysis of the 1H NMR spectrum that was collected. The melting point range of 87.8-94.7 oC also indicated that the mixture was largely composed of N-ethylsaccharin. The more prevalent product structure is:



N-ethylsaccharin product O-ethylsaccharin product

Experimental Procedure:

Sodium saccharin (0.446 g) was dissolved in N-N-dimethylformamide (DMF) at 80oC. Iodoethane (0.16 mL) was added and heated at constant temperature (80oC) for ten minutes. The product was separated by adding water to the room temperature solution, further cooled in ice and the solid collected and dried via vacuum filtration. The following week, the dried product (0.442g) was analyzed by melting point (87.8-94.7oC), and a 1H NMR spectrum.

Data and Calculations:
