General description

1,8-Dichlorooctane is a chloroparaffin. The non-exponentiality of proton spin-lattice relaxation in polycrystalline 1,8-dichlorooctane in Zeeman-quadrupole level-crossing experiments at various frequencies is reported. It has important synthetic applications in food, pharmaceutical, biomedical, electrical and electronic sectors.

Application

1,8-Dichlorooctane may be used:
  • as adsorbate to investigate the performance of carbonaceous materials for the adsorption of emerging pollutants
  • to prepare the C20-backbone of 1,20-substituted eicosanes carrying phosphate headgroups and readily derivatizable thiol, maleimido, and activated carboxylic ester moieties
  • in the synthesis of planar-chiral imidazolium salt
  • in the preparation of biosensors
  • in the fabrication of strong polymeric membranes for concentrating amino acids, having applications in food and pharmaceutical industry
  • in the synthesis of perfluorocarbons having biomedical applications

The adsorption of three representative emerging pollutants over different kinds of carbonaceous adsorbents has been studied in this work. The adsorbates were nalidixic acid (NAL, representative of a pharmaceutical), 1,8-dichlorooctane (DCO, a chloroparaffin) and methyl-phenoxy-ethanol (MPET, a surfactant). Activated carbons

New 1,20-substituted eicosanes carrying phosphate headgroups and readily derivatizable thiol, maleimido, and activated carboxylic ester moieties were prepared. The C20-backbone of these molecules was assembled by a halopolycarbon homologation from 1,8-dichlorooctane and 1,6-dibromohexane. 20-Mercapto- and 20-maleimido-icosylphosphates were synthesized via omega-bromo
