Clean technique for producing nitrilotriacetic acid

Post by NTA »

Ammonia water, sodium hydroxide and hydroxyacetonitrile are utilized as raw materials to synthesize the nitrilotriacetic acid.

Anyone can help me to form chemical equation for this reaction?

I found this technique from the patent but couldn't form the chemical equation.

NH3 + 3 HOCH2CN => N(CH2CN)3 + 3 H2O

RCN + NaOH + H2O => RCOONa + NH3

Calculate the sum by yourself.
