Additional recommended knowledge
The original Wenker synthesis of aziridine itself takes place in two steps. In the first step ethanolamine is reacted with sulfuric acid at high temperatures (250°C) to the sulfonate salt, This salt is then reacted with sodium hydroxide in the second step forming azirine. The base abstracts an amine proton enabling it to displace the sulfonate group. A modification of this reaction involving lower reaction temperatures (140 - 180°C) and therefore reduced charring increases the yield of the intermediate.
