    Description

    Technical Field



    [0001] The present invention relates to a method for producing a 2,4,6-tris(2-hydroxy-3-methyl-4-alkoxyphenyl)-1,3,5-triazine compound useful as ultraviolet absorber.

    Technical Background



    [0002] Many functional films having optical properties are used as display-related materials. However, these materials are susceptible to degradation by ultraviolet light. Therefore, an ultraviolet absorber having excellent absorption capability with respect to various wavelength ranges is used for improving light fastness. Among ultraviolet absorbers, a 2,4,6-tris(2-hydroxy-3-methyl-4-alkoxyphenyl)-1,3,5-triazine compound is an ultraviolet absorber having an excellent ultraviolet absorbing ability in a long wavelength region, and thus, is expected for use in applications, such as a polarizer protective film, requiring absorption capability in a long wavelength region.

    [0003] As a production method of the 2,4,6-tris(2-hydroxy-3-methyl-4-alkoxyphenyl)-1,3,5-triazine compound, a method is known in which a reaction of 2,4,6-tris(2,4-dihydroxy-3-methylphenyl)-1,3,5-triazine with an alkyl halide is carried out using dimethylformamide as a solvent and potassium carbonate as a base (Patent Document 1).

    [0004] Further, as production methods of the 2,4,6-tris(2,4-dihydroxy-3-methylphenyl)-1,3,5-triazine, a method in which a reaction of cyanuric chloride with 2-methylresorcinol is carried out in presence of aluminum chloride using chlorobenzene as a solvent and cyclopentyl methyl ether as an additive (Patent Document 2), and a method in which sulfolane is used as a solvent (Patent Document 3), are known.

    Mode for Carrying Out the Invention



    [0011] In the following, embodiments of the production methods of the 2,4,6-tris(2-hydroxy-3-methyl-4-alkoxyphenyl)-1,3,5-triazine compound and 2,4,6-tris(2,4-dihydroxy-3-methylphenyl)-1,3,5-triazine are described. The scope of protection is defined by the appended claims.

    [Triarylation Process]



    [0012] First, a production method of 2,4,6-tris(2,4-dihydroxy-3-methylphenyl)-1,3,5-triazine represented by the following reaction scheme is described so as to illustrate aspects [7] and [8] of the invention.



    [0013] In the present invention, for example, a reaction is carried out by adding a reaction solvent and an ester compound as an additive to cyanuric chloride and, after adjusting temperature, adding Lewis acid and 2-methylresorcinol.

    [0014] The reaction solvent is not particularly limited as long as the reaction solvent does not affect the reaction. Specifically, for example, ether-based solvents such as tetrahydrofuran, methyl tetrahydrofuran, diethyl ether, 1,4-dioxane, methyl tert-butyl ether, and ethylene glycol dimethyl ether; nitrile-based solvents such as acetonitrile, and propionitrile; aliphatic hydrocarbon-based solvents such as pentane, hexane, heptane, and methylcyclohexane; aromatic hydrocarbon-based solvents such as benzene, toluene, xylene, ethylbenzene, and mesitylene; ketone-based solvents such as acetone, methyl ethyl ketone, and methyl isobutyl ketone; halogen-based solvents such as methylene chloride, 1,2-dichloroethane, and chlorobenzene; sulfoxide-based solvents such as dimethyl sulfoxide, and sulfolane; amide-based solvents such as N,N-dimethylformamide, N,N-dimethylacetamide, N,N-diethylacetamide, N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone, N-ethyl-2-pyrrolidone, N-methyl-ε-caprolactam, and hexamethylphosphoramide; urea-based solvents such as dimethylpropylene urea; phosphonic acid triamide-based solvents such as hexamethylphosphonic acid triamide; and the like can be used. These solvents may each be independently used, or two or more of these solvents may be used in combination. When two or more of the solvents are used in combination, mixing ratios thereof are not particularly limited. Preferred solvents are halogen-based solvents such as methylene chloride, 1,2-dichloroethane, and chlorobenzene; sulfoxide-based solvent such as dimethyl sulfoxide, and sulfolane; amide-based solvents such as N,N-dimethylformamide, N,N-dimethylacetamide, N,N-diethylacetamide, N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone, N-ethyl-2-pyrrolidone, N-methyl-ε-caprolactam, and hexamethylphosphoramide; and urea-based solvents such as dimethylpropylene urea. More preferred solvents are chlorobenzene, sulfolane, N,N-dimethylformamide, and N,N-dimethylacetamide.

    [0015] A too large amount of the solvent to be used is not preferable from a point of view of cost and a post-treatment. Therefore, an upper limit of the amount of the solvent to used with respect to 1 part by weight of the cyanuric chloride is preferably 100 times by weight, more preferably 50 times by weight, and particularly preferably 20 times by weight. A lower limit of the amount of the solvent to used with respect to 1 part by weight of the cyanuric chloride is preferably is preferably 0.1 times by weight, more preferably 0.5 times by weight, and particularly preferably 1 times by weight.

    [0016] A particularly preferred solvent is chlorobenzene. An amount of chlorobenzene to be used is not particularly limited. However, the amount of chlorobenzene with respect to 1 part by weight of the cyanuric chloride is preferably 80 times by weight or less, more preferably 40 times by weight or less, and particularly preferably 20 times by weight or less. A lower limit of the amount of chlorobenzene is not particularly limited, but is preferably 2 times by weight or more, more preferably 5 times by weight or more, and particularly preferably 10 times by weight or more.

    [0017] Although a definite action mechanism of the ester compound is unknown, it is presumed that a coordination ability of the ester compound with respect to the Lewis acid is involved. That is, when an additive having a high coordination ability is used, since the coordination ability with respect to the Lewis acid is too strong, progress of the reaction is inhibited. On the other hand, when an additive having a low coordination ability is used, there is a risk that the reaction may proceed too rapidly. As an additive of a reaction solvent for the synthesis of the 2,4,6-tris(2,4-dihydroxy-3-methylphenyl)-1,3,5-triazine compound according to the present invention, the ester compound is most suitable from a point of view of coordination ability. The ester compound has a moderate coordination ability and can moderately control a reactivity of the Lewis acid, and thus, yield and purity of the compound (1) are improved.

    [0018] The ester compound as an additive is not particularly limited. However, examples of the ester compound include formate ester, acetic ester, propionate ester, butyric acid ester, isobutyric acid ester, benzoic acid ester, malonic esters, lactone, and the like. Further, the examples include C1-6 alkyl ester, C3-6 cycloalkyl ester, C7-12 alkyl ester, C6-12 aryl ester, C6-12 aryl-C1-6 alkyl ester, and the like. Specifically, the examples include methyl formate, ethyl formate, propyl formate, isopropyl formate, butyl formate, hexyl formate, methyl acetate, ethyl acetate, propyl acetate, isopropyl acetate, butyl acetate, isobutyl acetate, s-butyl acetate, t-butyl acetate, amyl acetate, isoamyl acetate, s-amyl acetate, t-amyl acetate, hexyl acetate, cyclohexyl acetate, octyl acetate, isooctyl acetate, nonyl acetate, decyl acetate, phenyl acetate, benzyl acetate, phenethyl acetate, methyl propionate, ethyl propionate, propyl propionate, isopropyl propionate, butyl propionate, hexyl propionate, methyl butyrate, ethyl butyrate, propyl butyrate, isopropyl butyrate, butyl butyrate, hexyl butyrate, methyl isobutyrate, ethyl isobutyrate, propyl isobutyrate, isopropyl isobutyrate, butyl isobutyrate, hexyl isobutyrate, methyl octanoate, methyl benzoate, ethyl benzoate, propyl benzoate, isopropyl benzoate, butyl benzoate, hexyl benzoate, dimethyl malonate, diethyl malonate, dimethyl succinate, diethyl succinate, γ-butyrolactone, δ-pentolactone, and the like. Ethyl acetate, propyl acetate, isopropyl acetate, butyl acetate, isobutyl acetate, s-butyl acetate, t-butyl acetate, amyl acetate, isoamyl acetate, s-amyl acetate, t-amyl acetate, and hexyl acetate are preferable. Ethyl acetate, isopropyl acetate, and hexyl acetate are more preferable.

    [0019] An amount of the ester compound to be used is not particularly limited. However, the amount of the ester compound with respect to 1 part by weight of the cyanuric chloride is preferably 60 parts by weight or less, more preferably 30 parts by weight or less, and particularly preferably 15 parts by weight or less. A lower limit of the amount of the ester compound is not particularly limited, but is preferably 0.01 parts by weight or more, more preferably 0.1 parts by weight or more, and particularly preferably 1 part by weight or more.

    [0020]  The Lewis acid used in the present invention is not particularly limited as long as the Lewis acid promotes the reaction according to the present invention. However, examples of the Lewis acid include magnesium chloride, magnesium bromide, aluminum chloride, aluminum bromide, zinc chloride, tin (IV) chloride, iron (III) chloride, antimony fluoride (V), antimony chloride (V), phosphorus trichloride, phosphorus pentachloride, phosphorus oxychloride, titanium tetrachloride, titanium trichloride, zirconium chloride, hafnium chloride, tetraisopropoxytitanium, scandium trifluoromethanesulfonate (III), niobium trichloride, niobium pentachloride, boron trifluoride, boron trifluoride-diethyl ether complex, boron trichloride, boron tribromide, and the like. Among these Lewis acids, aluminum chloride is preferable.

    [0021] An amount of the Lewis acid to be used is not particularly limited. However, the amount of the Lewis acid with respect to 1 mole of the cyanuric chloride is preferably 8 moles or less, more preferably 4 moles or less, and particularly preferably 2 moles or less. A lower limit of the amount of the Lewis acid is not particularly limited, but is preferably 0.2 moles or more, more preferably 0.5 moles or more, and particularly preferably 1 mole or more.

    [0022] An amount of the 2-methylresorcinol to be used is not particularly limited. However, the amount of the 2-methylresorcinol with respect to 1 mole of the cyanuric chloride is preferably 16 moles or less, more preferably 8 moles or less, and particularly preferably 4 moles or less. A lower limit of the amount of the 2-methylresorcinol is not particularly limited, but is preferably 0.7 moles or more, more preferably 1.5 moles or more, and particularly preferably 3 moles or more.

    [0023] A form of adding Lewis acid and 2-methyl resorcinol is not particularly limited. However, Lewis acid and 2-methyl resorcinol may be added in a form of solids or in a state of being dissolved or suspended in a solvent.

    [0024] After the cyanuric chloride, the reaction solvent and the ester compound are mixed, temperature may be temporarily adjusted. The temperature may be appropriately set, but can be, for example, 20 °C or more and 80 °C or less.

    [0025]  A reaction temperature of the present process is not particularly limited, but is preferably not higher than a boiling point of the reaction solvent, more preferably 80 °C or lower, and particularly preferably 50 °C or lower. A lower limit of the reaction temperature is not particularly limited, but is preferably not lower than a melting point of the reaction solvent, more preferably 0 °C or higher, and particularly preferably 30 °C or higher.

    [0026] An order of addition of the reagents in the present process is not particularly limited. However, the Lewis acid may be added to a solution to which the cyanuric chloride, the reaction solvent and the ester compound are added, and subsequently the 2-methylresorcinol may be added. Or, the 2-methyl resorcinol may be added to a solution to which the cyanuric chloride, the reaction solvent and the ester compound are added, and subsequently the Lewis acid may be added. Further, it is also possible that the Lewis acid and the 2-methylresorcinol are added at the same time.

    [0027] After completion of the reaction, it is preferable to perform a general post-treatment. For example, excess Lewis acid is hydrolyzed by adding an inert solvent such as toluene and raising the temperature and further adding a hydrochloric acid. Next, after distilling off water content by heating distillation, a solid precipitated by cooling is filtered off, and the obtained solid is washed sequentially with toluene or the like and water or the like, and thereby, a crude product of the compound (1) is obtained. When necessary, it is also possible that the crude product is reslurried with water or the like and then filtered, and thereby, remaining aluminum and an acidic component are removed to increase purity.

    [0028] An amount of the inert solvent such as toluene to be used in the treatment after the reaction is not particularly limited. However, the amount of the inert solvent with respect to 1 part by weight of the cyanuric chloride is preferably 60 parts by weight or less, more preferably 30 parts by weight or less, and particularly preferably 15 parts by weight or less. A lower limit of the amount of the inert solvent is not particularly limited, but is preferably 1 part by weight or more, more preferably 2 parts by weight or more, and particularly preferably 5 parts by weight or more.

    [0029] A concentration of the hydrochloric acid used for the treatment after the reaction is not particularly limited. However, the concentration of the hydrochloric acid with respect to the entire reaction solution is preferably 35 wt% or less, more preferably 30 wt% or less, and particularly preferably 20 wt% or less. A lower limit of the concentration of the hydrochloric acid is not particularly limited, but is preferably 5 wt% or more, more preferably 10 wt% or more, and particularly preferably 15 wt% or more.

    [0030] An amount of the hydrochloric acid to be used is not particularly limited. However, the amount of the hydrochloric acid with respect to 1 mole of the cyanuric chloride is, for example, 16 moles or less, preferably 8 moles or less, and more preferably 4 moles or less. A lower limit of the amount of the hydrochloric acid is not particularly limited, but is, for example, 0.7 moles or more, preferably 1.5 moles or more, and more preferably 3 moles or more.

    [0031] A temperature at which the hydrochloric acid is added is not particularly limited, but is preferably not higher than a boiling point of the reaction solvent, more preferably 150 °C or lower, and particularly preferably 100 °C or lower. A lower limit of the temperature at which the hydrochloric acid is added is not particularly limited, but is preferably not lower than a melting point of the reaction solvent, more preferably 30 °C or higher, and particularly preferably 50 °C or higher.

    [0032] The temperature at which the solid is precipitated by cooling is not particularly limited, but is preferably 70 °C or lower, more preferably 50 °C or lower, and particularly preferably 30 °C or lower.

    [0033] A method for separating the solid is not particularly limited, but a solid of a target substance can be obtained using a method such as vacuum filtration, pressure filtration, or centrifugation.

    [Trialkylation Process]



    [0034] Next, a production method of the 2,4,6-tris(2-hydroxy-3-methyl-4-alkoxyphenyl)-1,3,5-triazine compound represented by the following reaction scheme is described.



    [0035] For example, an alcohol, or water is added to 2,4,6-tris(2,4-dihydroxy-3-methylphenyl)-1,3,5-triazine represented by the above formula (1). A base is added and the temperature is adjusted, and thereafter, an alkylating agent is further added to carry out a reaction. When the 2,4,6-tris(2-hydroxy-3-methyl-4-alkoxyphenyl)-1,3,5-triazine compound is generated from the 2,4,6-tris(2,4-dihydroxy-3-methylphenyl)-1,3,5-triazine compound using an alcohol or water, there is an advantage that solubility decreases and precipitation occurs and thus the reaction does not proceed further.

    [0036] The compound (1) used in the present process may be in a free form, or in a form of a salt with an acid such as hydrochloride, hydrobromide, sulfate and methanesulfonate, or an alkali metal salt such as a lithium salt, a sodium salt and potassium salt. Further, the compound (1) may be used in a form of a dry crystal, a wet crystal, or an extraction solution.

    [0037]  The alcohol is not particularly limited. However, examples of the alcohol include C1-6 alkyl alcohols such as methanol, ethanol, n-propanol, isopropanol (2-propanol), n-butanol (1-butanol), t-butanol, pentyl alcohol, and hexyl alcohol (1-hexanol); C3-6 cycloalkyl alcohols such as cyclopropanol, cyclobutanol, cyclopentanol, and cyclohexanol; polyvalent alcohols such as ethylene glycol; and the like. Preferred alcohols are methanol, ethanol, n-propanol, isopropanol, n-butanol, t-butanol, pentyl alcohol, and hexyl alcohol; more preferred alcohols are ethanol, n-propanol, isopropanol, n-butanol, t-butanol, and hexyl alcohol; even more preferred alcohols are ethanol, isopropanol, n-butanol, and t-butanol; and a particularly preferred alcohol is ethanol. These alcohols or water may each be independently used, or two or more of these alcohols or water may be used in combination.

    [0038] Since water or alcohol is used in the present process, it is also possible to use an alcohol aqueous solution. A mixing ratio of water and alcohol in an alcohol aqueous solution may be appropriately adjusted. However, for example, a concentration of the alcohol can be set to about 5 wt% or more and about 95 wt% or less.

    [0039] An amount of the alcohol or water to be used is not particularly limited. However, the amount of the alcohol or water with respect to 1 part by weight of the compound (1) is preferably 60 parts by weight or less, more preferably 30 parts by weight or less, and particularly preferably 15 parts by weight or less. A lower limit of the amount of the alcohol or water is not particularly limited, but is preferably 0.2 parts by weight or more, more preferably 0.5 parts by weight or more, and particularly preferably 1 part by weight or more.

    [0040] Since the alcohol or water also serves as a reaction solvent, it is not particularly necessary to additionally add a solvent, hence in the present invention the solvent consists of alcohol, water or a combination of alcohol and water.

    [0041] The base is not particularly limited. However, preferred bases are an alkali metal hydroxide, an alkali metal alkoxide, an alkali metal carbonate, an alkali metal hydrogen carbonate, an alkaline earth metal hydroxide, an alkaline earth metal carbonate, an alkaline earth metal hydrogen carbonate; more preferred bases are a potassium hydroxide, a potassium alkoxide, a potassium carbonate, and a potassium hydrogen carbonate; and a particularly preferred base is a potassium carbonate. An amount of the base to be used is not particularly limited. However, the amount of the base with respect to 1 mole of the compound (1) is preferably 12 moles or less, more preferably 6 moles or less, and particularly preferably 3 moles or less. A lower limit of the amount of the base is not particularly limited, but is preferably 0.5 moles or more, more preferably 1 mole or more, and particularly preferably 2 moles or more.

    [0042] An alkylating agent used in the present reaction is represented the above formula (2). An order of addition of the compound (1), the alcohol or water, the base, the additional solvent and the alkylating agent (2) in the present process is not particularly limited. However, the alkylating agent (2) is preferably added last. Here, R represents a C1-10 alkyl group, and may any one of a C1-10 straight chain alkyl group, a C1-10 branched chain alkyl group, and a C3-10 cycloalkyl group. Preferably, R is an ethyl group, an n-propyl group, an n-butyl group, an n-pentyl group, or an n-hexyl group, and is more preferably an n-butyl group or an n-hexyl group. Further, X represents a leaving group, and is preferably a halogen atom or a sulfonyloxy group, and is more preferably a bromine atom, an iodine atom, or a methanesulfonyloxy group. An amount of the alkylating agent (2) to be used is not particularly limited. However, the amount of the alkylating agent (2) with respect to 1 mole of the compound (1) is preferably 20 moles or less, more preferably 10 moles or less, and particularly preferably 5 moles or less. A lower limit of the amount of the alkylating agent (2) is not particularly limited, but is preferably 2 moles or more, more preferably 3 moles or more, and particularly preferably 4 moles or more.

    [0043] A reaction temperature of the present process is not particularly limited, but is preferably not higher than a boiling point of the reaction solvent, more preferably 200 °C or lower, and particularly preferably 150 °C or lower. A lower limit of the reaction temperature is not particularly limited, but is preferably not lower than a melting point of the reaction solvent, more preferably 0 °C or higher, and particularly preferably 50 °C or higher.

    [0044]  After completion of the reaction, it is preferable to perform a general post-treatment. For example, the reaction solution is neutralized by adding an acid, and is cooled, and thereby a solid is precipitated. By filtering and washing the solid, the 2,4,6-tris(2-hydroxy-3-methyl-4-alkoxyphenyl)-1,3,5-triazine compound (3), which is a target product, is obtained.

    [0045] The acid used for neutralization is not particularly limited. However, preferred acids are mineral acids such as hydrogen chloride, hydrogen bromide, sulfuric acid, and nitric acid; ammonium salts such as ammonium chloride, ammonium sulfate, and ammonium acetate; sulfonic acids such as trifluoromethanesulfonic acid, p-toluenesulfonic acid, and methanesulfonic acid. More preferred acids are hydrogen chloride, sulfuric acid, and ammonium chloride. A particularly preferred acid is ammonium chloride. These acids may each be directly used or may each be used as an aqueous solution.

    [0046] An amount of the acid to be used is not particularly limited. However, the amount of the acid with respect to 1 mole of the compound (1) is preferably 20 moles or less, more preferably 10 moles or less, and particularly preferably 5 moles or less. A lower limit of the amount of the acid is not particularly limited, but is preferably 1 mole or more, more preferably 2 moles or more, and particularly preferably 4 moles or more. Further, a degree of the neutralization may be appropriately adjusted. However, for example, pH can be adjusted to 6.0 or more and 8.0 or less. In an excessive acidic state, there is a risk that the compound (1) may become a salt to increase its solubility and may be difficult to precipitate as a solid. On the other hand, in an excessive basic state, there is a risk that a salt corresponding to the base used may precipitate.

    [0047] The temperature at which the solid is precipitated is not particularly limited, but is preferably 70 °C or lower, more preferably 50 °C or lower, and particularly preferably 30 °C or lower. A lower limit of the temperature at which the solid is precipitated is not particularly limited, but is preferably not lower than a melting point of the reaction solvent, more preferably -40 °C or higher, and particularly preferably -20 °C or higher.

    [0048]  A method for separating the solid is not particularly limited, but a solid of a target substance can be obtained using a method such as vacuum filtration, pressure filtration, or centrifugation.

    [0049] The compound (3) as a target product has a purity sufficient to achieve its functions in this state. However, in a case where it is desired to further improve the purity, when necessary, recrystallization may be carried out. Here, a solvent used for recrystallization is preferably tetrahydrofuran, ethyl acetate, toluene, dimethylformamide, or water, and more preferably ethyl acetate.

    [0050] Using the compound (3) produced using the method of the present invention, a polarizer protective film can be produced, and further, a polarizing plate can be produced. Specifically, at least the compound (3) produced using the method of the present invention and a thermoplastic resin are mixed to prepare a thermoplastic resin composition, and further, the thermoplastic resin composition is molded into a film-like shape, and thereby, a polarizer protective film can be produced. The polarizer protective film is a film that protects a polarizer from ultraviolet light and the like in a polarizing plate.

    [0051] As the thermoplastic resin used in producing the polarizer protective film, a commonly known thermoplastic resin can be used. Examples of the thermoplastic resin include thermoplastic cellulose-based resins such as triacetyl cellulose; polyester-based resins such as polyethylene terephthalate; poly (meth) acrylic acid-based resins; and the like.

    [0052] To prepare the thermoplastic resin composition, it is sufficient that the thermoplastic resin composition to be used is heated to at least a melting temperature thereof and is melt-kneaded with at least the compound (3). In thermoplastic resin composition, other materials such as a filler, an antioxidant, a heat deterioration inhibitor, a light stabilizer, a lubricant, a release agent, a polymer processing aid, an antistatic agent, a flame retardant, a dye pigment, a light diffusing agent, an organic dye, a delustering agent, an impact modifier, a foaming agent, a filler, and a fluorescence substance may be added.

    [0053]  The thermoplastic resin composition may be formed into a polarizer protective film by being molded into a film-like shape using, for example, a solution casting method, a melt extrusion method, a calendar method, a compression molding method, or the like. Further, uniaxial extension or biaxial extension may also be performed. a thickness of the film may be appropriately adjusted. However, for example, the thickness of the film can be about 10 µm or more and about 300 µm or less.

    [0054] A polarizing plate can be produced by laminating the polarizer protective film on at least one side of a polarizer. As the polarizer, a general polarizer can be used. For example, a film obtained by adsorbing a dichroic substance such as iodine or a dichroic dye on a hydrophilic film such as a polyvinyl alcohol-based film and unixially stretching the hydrophilic film can be used. A thickness of the polarizer is not particularly limited. However, for example, the thickness of the polarizer can be about 1 µm or more and 100 µm or less. The polarizer protective film can be laminated on the polarizer using an ordinary lamination method.

    <Reaction Conversion Rate of 2,4,6-Tris(2,4-Dihydroxy-3-Methylphenyl)-1,3,5-Triazine>



    [0059] The following reaction conversion rate and purity were calculated from the following formulas based on peak areas of a high-performance liquid chromatography chart. Further, in the calculation of the reaction conversion rate, impurities other than a di-substituted [2-chloro-4,6-di(2,4-dihydroxy-3-methylphenyl)-1,3,5-triazine] are not taken into consideration in the calculation formula since a production amount thereof is extremely small.

    [0060] Similarly, impurities other than di-substituted [2-(2,4-dihydroxy-3-methylphenyl)-4,6-di(2-hydroxy-3-methyl-4-hexyloxyphenyl)-1,3,5-triazine] are not taken into consideration in the calculation formula since a production amount thereof is extremely small.


    <Purity>



    [0061] Purity of a target substance was calculated from a HPLC chart using the following calculation formula.


    Reference Example 1: Triarylation Process



    [0062] Cyanuric chloride (20.00 g, 108.5 mmol), chlorobenzene (369.60 g, 18.48 wt/wt), and ethyl acetate (180.00 g, 9.00 wt/wt) were added and the temperature was adjusted to 40 °C. Aluminum chloride (21.70 g, 1.50 equivalents) was added over 10 minutes using a solid inlet tube, and thereafter, 2-methylresorcinol (47.14 g, 3.50 equivalents) was added over 30 minutes. Here, "wt/wt" means a weight ratio with respect to cyanuric chloride. After allowing a reaction to proceed at 40 °C for 25 hours, a reaction conversion rate was 97%. Toluene (217.40 g, 10.87 wt/wt) was added, and thereafter, the temperature was raised to 80 °C. 18 wt% hydrochloric acid (85.90 g, 3.80 equivalents) was added and the temperature was raised to 86 °C, and decomposition of aluminum chloride was carried out over 1 hour, and thereafter, dehydration by heating distillation was carried out for 4 hours. After cooling to 25 °C, filtration was carried out with a Buchner funnel to obtain a crude product of the compound (1). The obtained crude product was reslurried with water (660.00 g, 33.00 wt/wt), and thereafter, filtration was carried out with a Buchner funnel to obtain the compound (1) (yield 93%, purity 96.9 area%, the compound (4) was not detected).

    Comparative Example 1: Use of CPME in Triarylation Process



    [0064] Cyanuric chloride (2.50 g, 13.6 mmol), 2-methylresorcinol (5.91 g, 3.50 equivalents), aluminum chloride (2.72 g, 1.50 equivalents), chlorobenzene (46.20 g, 18.48 wt/wt), and cyclopentyl methyl ether (2.45 g, 0.98 wt/wt, CPME) were added and the mixture was allowed to react at 80 °C for 2 hours. At 80 °C, 18 wt% hydrochloric acid (10.76 g, 3.8 equivalents) was added and the temperature was raised to 90 °C, and decomposition of aluminum chloride was carried out over 1 hour, and thereafter, toluene (27.18 g, 10.87 wt/wt) was added and reflux dehydration was carried out for 2 hours. After cooling to 25 °C, filtration was carried out with a Buchner funnel to obtain the compound (1) (3.88 g, yield: 64%, purity: 80.9 area%, containing 14.7 area% of the compound (4)). In this way, when cyclopentyl methyl ether was used as an additive, the compound (4) as an impurity was generated, and the yield and purity of the target compound decreased.

    Comparative Example 2: Use of CPME in Triarylation Process



    [0065] Cyanuric chloride (15.00 g, 81.34 mmol), chlorobenzene (277.2 g, 18.48 wt/wt), cyclopentyl methyl ether (14.70 g, 0.98 wt/wt) were added and the temperature was adjusted to 25 °C. Aluminum chloride (16.27 g, 1.50 equivalents) was added over 1 hour using a solid inlet tube, and thereafter, 2-methylresorcinol (35.34 g, 3.50 equivalents) was added over 1 hour. After allowing the mixture to react at 25 °C for 18 hours, a reaction intermediate represented by the following formula (6):

    remained, and the reaction conversion rate was 93%. Subsequently, the same post-treatment as in Comparative Example 1 was carried out to obtain the compound (30.28 g, yield: 83%, purity: 88.6 area%, containing 4.3 area% of the compound (4)).

    Comparative Example 3: Examination of Additives in Triarylation Process



    [0066] Cyanuric chloride (0.50 g, 2.7 mmol), chlorobenzene (9.24 g, 18.48 wt/wt), dibutyl ether (0.49 g, 0.98 wt/wt) were added and the temperature was adjusted to 25 °C. After adding aluminum chloride (0.54 g, 1.5 equivalents), 2-methylresorcinol (1.18 g, 3.50 equivalents) was added, and the mixture was allowed to react at 25 °C, and stirring became difficult due to deterioration of a liquid property. The reaction conversion rate was 62%.

    Comparative Examples 4 - 15: Examination of Additives in Triarylation Process



    [0067] The operation of the above Comparative Example 3 was followed except that additives were changed. In a case where an ether-based solvent, a nitrile-based solvent, an amide-based solvent, a ketone-based solvent, or a sulfoxide-based solvent was used as an additive, or in a case where no additive was used, deterioration of a liquid property, poor reaction, or a low reaction conversion rate was a problem.

    Reference Examples 16 - 18: Examination of Additives in Triarylation Process



    [0068] In a case where an ester-based solvent was used as an additive, the liquid property was good and the reaction conversion rate was also equal to or higher than that of Comparative Example 2.

    [0069] The results of Comparative Examples 2 - 15 and Reference Examples 16 - 18 are shown in Table 2. In Table 2, regarding the liquid property, a case where the viscosity of the reaction solution excessively increased and stirring became difficult was regarded as "bad" and a case where the viscosity of the reaction solution did not excessively increase and stirring could be continued was regarded as "good."

After neutralization by adding water (170.74 g, 6.6 wt/wt) and ammonium chloride (14.85 g, 4.80 equivalents) and cooling to 25 °C, a solid precipitated. By filtering and washing the solid, a crude product of the compound (3) was obtained. Ethyl acetate (150.00 g, 5.00 wt/wt) was added to the crude product to dissolve the crude product at 57 °C, and thereafter, the mixture was cooled to 1 °C, and was aged for 15 hours. By subjecting this to filtration and washing, the compound (3) (32.74 g, 81%, purity: 99.0 area%, both a later-described compound (7) and a later-described compound (8) were not detected) was obtained.
