1-Formylpiperidine reacts with Grignard or alkyllithium reagents gives aldehydes in high yield. It can be used as a polar aprotic solvent, with better hydrocarbon solubility than other amide solvents such as dimethylformamide. In some formylation reaction of alkyllithium compounds it gives higher yields than the DMF.
Freely soluble in water.
Incompatible materials are oxidizing agents. Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place.
