General description

4-Bromobenzyl alcohol undergoes three-component reaction with acetylferrocene and arylboronic acid to give ferrocenyl ketones containing biaryls. It undergoes oxidation reaction in the presence of polyvinylpolypyrrolidone-supported hydrogen peroxide, silica sulfuric acid and ammonium bromide to yield 4-bromobenzaldehyde. It undergoes efficient trimethylsilylation reaction with 1,1,1,3,3,3-hexamethyldisilazane in the presence of catalytic amount of aspartic acid in acetonitrile.


4-Bromobenzyl alcohol was used in the synthesis of:
  • hydroxyl end functionalized, substituted polyfluorene
  • amphiphilic, symmetric rod-coil, triblock copolymer of poly(9,9-didodecylfluorene-2,7-diyl) and poly(hydroxyl ethyl methacrylate)
