General description

α-Bromocinnamaldehyde is commonly employed as an anti-mildew agent in commercial products.


α-Bromocinnamaldehyde was used in the synthesis of 3,4-diaryl 1H-pyrazoles. It was also used in the preparation of spiro imidazolidine-oxazolidine intermediate via guanidinium ylide mediated aziridination.

The amount of alpha-bromocinnamaldehyde (BCA), an anti-mildew agent, in some commercial products, was examined by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) using the following conditions: column, Nucleosil 50-5 (Nagel, 250 mm x 4.6 mm i.d.); mobile phase, hexane-chloroform (12:5); flow rate...

Early experiments showed cinnamaldehyde had obvious therapeutic effect on viral myocarditis, but cinnamaldehyde was unstable in vivo. To overcome this limitation, we used cinnamaldehyde as a lead compound to synthesize α-bromo-4-chlorocinnamaldehyde (BCC). In the present study, we compared the therapeutic...

The Masuda borylation-Suzuki coupling (MBSC) sequence was successfully extended to the challenging coupling of vinylhalides with various (hetero)arylhalides using sterically hindered phosphane ligands. Starting from (hetero)arylhalides and α-bromocinnamaldehyde, the sequentially Pd-catalyzed process selectively furnishes α,β-substituted cinnamaldehydes without affecting the reactivity...

Bromocinnamic aldehyde (BCA), an antibacterial/antifungal agent, was tested for its chronic toxicity/carcinogenicity in female Slc:ddY mice. The animals received 0.25%, 1.0% and 4.0% of BCA dissolved in olive oil applied to the shaved back skin area twice a week for...

We successfully isolated a spiro imidazolidine-oxazolidine intermediate in the reaction of guanidinium ylide mediated aziridination using alpha-bromocinnamaldehyde. X-ray crystallographic analysis unambiguously revealed that the stereogenic centers of the spiro intermediate were in a trans configuration. The role of the spiro...
