Application

N-Methylpyrrolidine can be used as a starting material to synthesize:
N-methyl pyrrolidine-zinc borohydride (ZBHNMP), a reducing agent for reduction of aldehydes, ketones, acid chlorides, and esters. ZBHNMP is also used in the reductive amination of aldehydes and ketones to their corresponding amines.
N-alkyl-N-methyl-pyrrolidinium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide ionic liquids.
N-methylpyrrolidine-2-one hydrotribromide applicable as a catalyst for aziridination of alkenes.

4'-Modified avermectin derivatives were designed and synthesized. Some of the new synthetic compounds showed excellent in vivo bioactivity against cabbage larvae when compared to commercially available avermectin B1a. In this synthesis, uncommon thioglycosyl sugar donors, prepared from the hydrolysis of...
