DID YOU KNOW?
In addition to their functionality as synthesis building blocks, ANGUS’ nitroalkane chemistries are commonly used as solvents for Friedel-Crafts reactions. The Lewis acids form 1:1 complexes with the nitroalkanes, providing excellent solvency, moderating their reactivity and minimizing side reactions or rearrangements. As crystallization solvents, nitroalkanes have shown the ability to drive polymorph selectivity. The combination of high polarity and low water solubility can also provide a number of advantages in solvent-extraction systems.
