Applications
4-Methyl-5-imidazolecarboxaldehyde is suitable for use in the synthesis of 1,3-bis[(4-methyl-5-imidazol-1-yl)ethylideneamino]-propan-2-ol (BIPO), 1,3-bis[(4-methyl-5-imidazol-1-yl)ethylideneamino]propane (BIP), {acetatoaqua[[(4-methylimidazol-5-yl)methylene]histamine]-copper(II)} perchlorate, Schiff base condensates with tris(2-aminoethyl)amine (tren) or tris(3-aminopropyl)amine (trpn). It is also used in the synthesis of imidazolate-based metal organic framework (MOF) membrane, 3,11-bis(4-imidazolylmethyl)-7-methyl-3,7,11,17-tetraazabicyclo[11.3.1]hepta-deca-1(17),13,15-triene, a 4-imidazolyl derivative of a 14-membered tetraazamacrocycle and Cu(II) eight and six coordinate compounds.

Solubility
Soluble in water, (23 g/L) (25°C).

Notes
