Abstract:
The present invention refers to a process for the preparation of chloromethyl 2,2,2-trifluoro-1-(trifluoromethyl)ethyl ether (sevochlorane) comprising reaction of hexafluoroisopropanol with a formaldehyde equivalent (paraformaldehyde or 1,3,5-trioxane) in the presence of a chlorinating agent and a strong acid. For example, hexafluoroisopropanol was reacted with paraformaldehyde at mole ratio of 1:1.5 in the presence of thionyl chloride and sulfuric acid to give sevochlorane (76.1%). Said process has advantages of high sevochlorane purity and yield.

Patent Number: US 8044247
Title: Process for the preparation of fluoromethyl 2,2,2-trifluoro-1-(trifluoromethyl)ethyl ether (sevoflurane) from hexafluoroisopropanol and formaldehyde.
Inventor(s): Pacheco, Ogari; Teixeira, Antonio Carlos; Lima, Edson Luiz; Boeckelmann, Maria Alice
Patent Assignee(s): Cristalia Produtos Quimicos Farmaceuticos Ltda., Brazil
Source: PCT Int. Appl., 36pp. CODEN: PIXXD2
Language: English

Abstract:
A process for the preparation of sevoflurane comprises reaction of hexafluoroisopropanol with a formaldehyde equivalent (paraformaldehyde or 1,3,5-trioxane), a chlorinating agent selected from oxalyl chloride, phosphorus trichloride, phosphorus pentachloride, phosphorus oxychloride, sulfuryl chloride and thionyl chloride, and a strong acid selected from concentrated or fuming sulfuric acid to form sevochlorane which is converted to sevoflurane in a second step consisting of reacting sevochlorane with an alkali metal fluoride, or a linear or branched chain tetraalkyl quaternary ammonium fluoride in the presence of a substoichiometric quantity of an alkali metal iodide, or a linear or branched alkyl chain tetraalkyl quaternary ammonium iodide, preferably in a solvent.
