Specifications

Description

Applications
Methyl isocyanoacetate is used in the copper-catalyzed, diastereoselective synthesis of oxazolines. It is involved in the direct aldol reaction with carbonyl compounds to prepare corresponding oxazoline by using catechol-copper network catalyst. Further, it is also involved in four-component Ugi condensation reaction. It undergoes asymmetric aldol reaction with fluorinated benzaldehyde using gold(I) as a catalyst.

Solubility
Miscible with organic solvents. Slightly miscible with water.

Notes
Light and moisture sensitive. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, strong bases, strong acids, hydrated iron(II) sulfate, heavy metals and aluminum. Store in a cool place. Keep the container tightly closed.
