Introduction to Schiff bases

  • Insert text here in scientifically acceptable way (ie: without grammar errors) to explain the functions and basics of Schiff base formation. [1]
  • Present summarly the basic psychopharmacological aspects/functions of imine in a biological system .

Formation of phenylmethylamine as the tautomeric form of a ethyl-methyl carbanion

  • For the long story, see Phenylmethylamine: A nucleophilic Schiff base where the N-substituted anion is fused to a benzene ring (?) to yield a enamine. See also Ethanamine. Note that the C=N double bond is the result (product) of asymmetric synthesis (Micheal addition) in presence of a organometal catalyst.
