General description

Kinetics of the reaction of 2-methyl-2-imidazoline with sulfate and hydrogen phosphate radicals has been investigated by flash-photolysis. Rate constant for the reaction was reported to be 108-109M-1s-1.
2-Methyl-2-imidazoline is monomethyl derivative of imidazoline. The self-association of 2-methyl-2-imidazoline was studied in aqueous solution, at different pH values, by ultraviolet spectroscopy.

Application

Reactant for:
Synthesis of cyclic-amine-based dithiocarbamate chain transfer agents for RAFT polymerization
Dehydration reactions
Synthesis of push-pull alkenes
Producing organic reductants for transfer hydrogenation
Synthesis of orally available factor Xa inhibitors
2-Methyl-2-imidazoline may be used in the synthesis of series of N,N,N′-trisubstituted ethylenediamine derivatives. It may be used in the preparation of 1-alkyl-2-methyl-2-imidazolines, via alkylation with organic halides in the presence of phase transfer catalysis and absence of solvent.
