Application

Zirconium (IV) chloride acts as an efficient Lewis acid catalyst for various reactions; such as:
  • electrophilic addition reaction of indole with aldehydes/ketones to form bis(indolyl)methanes. electrophilic amination of activated arenes,
  • transthioacetylization of acetals,
  • deoxygenation of heterocyclic-N-oxides,
  • reduction of nitro compounds,
  • conversion of carbonyl compounds to 1,3-oxathiolanes,
  • Biginelli reaction for the synthesis of 3,4-dihydropyrimidin-2(1H)-ones,
  • direct amide coupling of non activated carboxylic acids and amines,
  • synthesis of quinoxalines and pyrido[2,3-b]pyrazines,
  • deprotection of t-butyldimethylsilyl (TBDMS) ethers.
Activates pyrrolidines for improved conversion, via a modified Bouveault reaction, to the corresponding α,α-dimethylamines.

Solid-State Metathesis Materials Synthesis

In the last two decades, a new method termed solid-state metathesis (SSM) has been developed to synthesize compounds that are often difficult to produce conventionally.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
