Product Description

Epichlorohydrin

Application Notes

Epichorohydrin is used as an acid scavenger in bromination reactions. The preparation of glycidyl ethers, often carried out in two steps, via the ring-opened chlorohydrin ether and subsequent ring-closure with base, can be achieved as a single step, under phase-transfer conditions by the use of epichlorohydrin. Its reaction with primary amines provides a one-step route to 3-azetidinols.

Usage Statement
