Precipitation-driven self-sorting of imines

Author affiliations


Judicious choice of precipitation conditions can lead to self-sorting of equilibrating mixtures of aromatic aldehydes and substituted anilines into a handful of imine products. The selectivity of this process is caused by the solubility differences among possible imines in the EtOH–H2O solvent mixtures used in precipitation.
