1-Phenylethylamine is a monoamine compound. Individual enantiomers of this basic compound are useful for performing chiral resolution of acidic compounds by forming diastereomeric salts and for performing chiral hydrogenations of ketones resulting in enantiopure amines.
This compound may be prepared by the reductive amination of acetophenone under various standard conditions for this type of reaction. One major route for this chemical uses the Mignonac reaction, a one-pot protocol using hydrogen gas as the reducing agent:
