General description

Ammoniumformate is a derivative of formic acid widely used as a hydrogen transfer reagentand formylating agent. It is also used in the preparation and storage of formicacid.

Application

Ammonium formate can be used as:
  • Hydrogen source in reduction of aromatic nitro compounds to corresponding amino derivatives in presence of Cu nanoparticles as catalyst.
  • Formylating agent for synthesis of N-formyl amino acid esters.
  • An OH radical scavenger in the preparation of nanocrystalline uranium and/or thorium oxides.

Features and Benefits

  • Inexpensive and readily available
  • Stable and non-toxic
  • Can be used in conjugation with Pd/C andRaney-Nickel catalyst.
  • Can be easily separated from the reaction mixture
