Schotten Baumann Reaction is a base-catalyzed reaction. The base is required to to shift the equilibrium towards the formation direction of of amides.The base also neutralizes the hydrochloric acid which is formed in the process, thereby preventing the further protonation of the amide product formed. Usually, aqueous NaOH is used as the base catalyst, but pyridine also can be used in this reaction. It is generally observed that the acyl chlorides are converted into acylating agents of superior power when pyridine is used as the base catalyst in Schotten Baumann Reaction The ‘Schotten Baumann conditions’ maintained in this reaction refer to the aqueous basic environment which is biphasic in nature.
