General description

N-(3-Dimethylaminopropyl)-N′-ethylcarbodiimide is commonly used in combination with N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS) in carbodiimide coupling reaction to activate carboxyl group for coupling with amines to form amides.

Application

N-(3-Dimethylaminopropyl)-N′-ethylcarbodiimide has been used for the surface functionalization of graphene quantum dots (GQDs) employed as sensing probes in Janus micromotors to detect enterobacterial contamination. It has also been used for the activation of folic acid, prior to its conjugation on silica nanoparticles.
