Application

3-Pentanol can be used as:
  • A starting material for the preparation of liquid crystals, 1-ethylpropyl (R)-2-[4-(4′-alkoxybiphenylcarbonyloxy)-phenoxy]propionates by reacting with chiral (S)-lactic acid.
  • Solvent/reductant in the catalytic deoxydehydration reaction of C4−C6 sugar alcohols into linear polyene using methyltrioxorhenium as a catalyst.
  • A reactant for the synthesis of 3-(4-bromophenyloxy)pentane by reacting with 4-bromophenol via base-catalyzed Mitsunobu reaction.
