Application

Benzylamine was used in the following studies:
  • To modify alkanethiol monolayers, via amide and ester formation reactions, for attaching monolayer and submonolayer coverages of specific chemical species onto metal electrodes.
  • As carrier electrolyte for the separation of alkali, alkaline earth and ammonium cations in water samples by capillary electrophoresis with indirect UV detection.
  • To synthesize cross-linked porous copolymer supports based on N-(p-vinylbenzoyl)-2-methylalanine, styrene and divinylbenzene.
It may be used as a reducing and stabilizing agent to generate reduced graphene oxide (rGO) from graphene oxide.
