  1. Hi,

    I have benzocaine base and I want to convert it to benzocaine hydrochloride. 

    The method I have is to dissolve the base in diethyl ether in one beaker, and in another beaker mix 37% hydrochloric acid with acetone, then combine the two beakers to initialize crystallization.

    HOWEVER I do not want to use ether because of the safety aspect. 

    Is there something I can substitute for ether? Ethyl acetate perhaps?
