Can we prepare aniline by Gabriel – phthalimide reaction?

No, We know that Gabriel phthalimide reaction requires the treatment of potassium phthalimide with C6H5Cl or C6H5Br. Since aryl halides do not undergo nucleophilic substitution under ordinary laboratory conditions, therefore C6H5Cl or C6H5Br does not react withbpotassium phthalimide to give N – phenylphthalimide and hence aniline cannot be prepared by this method.
