Quinoxaline and its Monohydrate

Abstract

ALTHOUGH quinoxaline, C8H6N2, was synthesized in 18841,2, and has been mentioned in the literature1–13 several times since that date, it is rather surprising that the existence of quinoxaline monohydrate has not been noticed, the more so since several physico-chemical determinations have been carried out with quinoxaline ; namely, vapour density in diphenylamine vapour3; density and refractive indices measured at 48°4 ; depression of the freezing point in diphenyl6 and use of quinoxaline as the cryoscopic solvent for the molecular weight estimation of naphthalene6.
