Application

Chloromethyl ethyl ether can be used to prepare:
  • 6-Benzyl-1-(ethoxymethyl)-5-iodopyrimidine-2,4(1H,3H)-dione, a key intermediate in the preparation of MKC-442 analog.
  • Acylation catalyst for alcohols named 1,3-bis-[(R)-1-(2-naphthyl)ethyl]imidazoliumchloride by reacting with glyoxal-bis-[(R)-1-(2-naphthyl)ethyl]imine.

Anion-conducting membranes were obtained following the cross-linking of 1,4-diazoniabicycle[2.2.2]octane functionalized-polysulfone with N,N-dimethyl chitosan (DMC). The ionic conductivity of the composite membranes was controlled by the amount of DMC. The influence of the amount of DMC on water uptake, swelling ratio...
