Chemical agents represent a serious threat to the modern world. Among them, they stand out nerve agents because of its high lethality and dangerousness. They are typically organophosphate compounds, which act by inhibiting acetylcholinesterase, a key enzyme in the transmission of nerve impulses process. There are several forms of treatment for organophosphate poisoning, and pralidoxime (2-PAM) is the drug most used as reactivator of acetylcholinesterase. In this work, we developed the first three steps for the synthesis of 2-PAM, with the objective of obtaining data to calculate the kinetic parameters of these steps. These parameters may be used for the manufacture of 2-PAM in semi-pilot scale. Through the studies conducted it has been found that the preparation of the oxime has very rapid kinetics.
