Application

Octylamine is mainly used to synthesize amphiphilic copolymers for polymer coating of quantum dots (QDs) to make them water-soluble.
Other applications:
  • Synthesis of 2-cyano-N-octylacetamide by reacting with ethyl cyanoacetate.
  • To induce uniformity for synthesizing uniform ultrathin metal sulfide nanostructures.
