General description

3-Phenyl-1-propanol is a fragrance ingredient.


3-Phenyl-1-propanol was used to study the hydrogenation of trans-cinnamaldehyde using water-soluble organometallic complexes. It was used as starting reagent during the enantioselective synthesis of (S)- and (R)-dapoxetine.

A highly efficient, enantioselective sequence has been developed for the synthesis of (S)- and (R)-dapoxetine. The pathways involve the intermediacy of the 6-membered-ring sulfamate esters 4, which were generated by Du Bois asymmetric C-H amination reactions of the prochiral sulfamate...

Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) have been widely studied as potential lubricants for microelectromechanical system (MEMS) devices. However, these single-layer films have nominally been found to be insufficient for mitigating wear in sliding contacts because of their rapid breakdown under the high...
