Application

5-Hexenenitrile may be used in the synthesis of 1,8-dicyano-4-octene.

General description

5-Hexenenitrile, an aliphatic nitrile, is a volatile compound that is formed as a degradation product of glucobrassicanapin in Aurinia sinuata. It is reported to be an attractant from oilseed rape for the cabbage seed weevil, Ceutorhynchus assimilis. 5-Hexenenitrile is the main volatile compound found in wheat extract. It undergoes Wacker oxidation to form the corresponding methyl ketone using PdCl2-DMA (palladium dichloride-N,N-diemthylacetamide) catalytic system.
