2,6-Diisopropylaniline acts as an intermediate used in the production of carbodiimides stabilizers, synthetic resins, antioxidants and active pharmaceutical ingredients. It is also used in the preparation of multitopic Schiff-base ligand precursors and 4,5-bis(2,6-diisopropylanilino)-2,7-di-tert-butyl-9,9-dimethylthioxanthene. It also undergoes condensation reaction with triacetylmethane to get -[1-(2,6-diisopropylphenylamino)ethylidene]pentane-2,4-dione. Further, it is used to prepare N-heterocyclic carbene complexes for alfa-arylation of acyclic ketones, amination of haloarenes and aqueous Suzuki coupling. In addition to this, it is used in the prepartion of organocatalyst based on naphthalene diimides.
Miscible with ether and alcohol. Slightly miscible with water.
Incompatible with acids, acid chlorides, acid anhydrides, chloroformates and strong oxidizing agents.
