General description

Benzylidenemalononitrile undergoes rapid and catalyst-free solid/vapor reaction with primary alkyl amines to yield N-benzylidene-amine. It undergoes addition reaction with octyl- and decylzirconocene chloride. It is a potential substrate for soluble methane monooxygenase.

Application

Benzylidenemalononitrile was used in fluorescence-based assay for determination of soluble methane monooxygenase activity in solution.

A fluorescence-based assay was developed to estimate soluble methane monooxygenase (sMMO) activity in solution. Whole cells of Methylosinus trichosporium OB3b expressing sMMO were used to oxidize various compounds to screen for fluorescent products. Of the 12 compounds tested, only coumarin

Direct addition of alkylzirconocenes to activated alkenes was found, for the first time. Octyl- and decylzirconocene chloride reacted with benzylidenemalononitrile to give the corresponding addition products after hydrolysis in 86% and 79% yield, respectively. Zirconacyclopentanes showed a similar reactivity toward

A new rapid and catalyst-free solid/vapor reaction between benzylidenemalonate/benzylidenemalononitrile and primary alkyl amines was found. With these as sensory units of fluorescent polymers, probes for primary amine vapor with high sensitivity and selectivity were developed.
