Abstract/Artist Statement

Solar photochemistry proved to be efficient for the nucleophilic substitution of alkoxy groups by amines in alkoxynitrobenzenes. The results of the sun-induced photochemical substitution were comparable to the outcome of the same reaction under irradiation by a low-pressure mercury lamp. Using 4’-nitrobenzo-15-crown-5 as a starting material, we obtained a polyether amino alcohol which will be used as a precursor for the synthesis of benzoazacrown ethers - the agents for selective binding of heavy metal salts.
