Important Points

Methods of preparation of Amines are: Reduction of nitro compounds , reaction of halides with ammonia , Hofmann degradation of amides , reduction of nitriles and amides.
Test for primary Amine (Carbylamines reaction) the treatment of a primary amine with chloroform and alcoholic potash produces carbylamines (isocyanides) which has most offensive smell. This test is not exhibited by secondary and tertiary amines.
In gaseous phase , the order of basicity is R3N >R2NH > RNH2 > NH3
Test for Secondary Amine is Liebermann reaction
