# How do I purify the resulting compound after a nitro- to amine-group reduction?

I have an aromatic compound that I reduced with either $\ce{Fe + HCl}$ or $\ce{Sn + HCl}$.

How would you choose to go about extracting the compound?

I'm thinking to dry off all the $\ce{HCl}$, redissolve in water, and react out the iron salts to Iron Hydroxide, which can be filtered out.

Then dry out again, dissolve in something like acetone then filter out the sodium chloride?
