General description

6-Bromo-1-hexanol, also known as hexamethylene bromohydrin is a cross-linking reagent that is commonly used in organic and polymeric synthesis.

Application

6-Bromo-1-hexanol is used as a cross linker to synthesize cyclic, branched, and bicyclic oligonucleotides by click chemistry. It is also utilized to synthesize gel polymer electrolytes, and polymerizable ionic liquids (PILs) such as 1-[(6-methacryloyloxy)hexyl]3-methylimidazolium bromide.
