General description

Ethyl 7-bromoheptanoate is a bromoester. It is used as an alkylating agent for organic compounds. It participates in the synthesis of ω-chain shortened prostaglandins.

Application

Ethyl 7-bromoheptanoate may be used in the following studies:
  • As a starting material in the synthesis of benzyl 7-iodoheptanoate.
  • As one of the reactant in the synthesis of diethyl 7,7′-(2,5-diiodo-1,4-phenylene)bis(oxy)diheptanoate.
  • As one of the reagent in the synthesis of CarnDOD-7C, a carnitine-derived nitrone.
  • As an alkylating agent in the alkylation of ethyl 3-oxoglutarate to form 2-(6-ethoxycarbonylhexyl)-3-oxoglutarate.
  • Synthesis of 1-substituted cyclopentadiene by alkylating lithium cyclopentadienide.5
