General description

Benzyl chloride helps in isolation of genomic DNA with least mechanical shearing from plants, fungi and bacteria.

Application

Benzyl chloride was used in development of new decontaminant microemulsions for selective oxidation of mustard gas analogs.It was used as an alkylating agent during the benzylation of benzene and other aromatic compounds.

α-diimine iron complexes have been suggested to catalyse polymerisation via two distinct pathways, depending on the spin state of the iron complex. Here, we study a typical complex of this family, (R'')[N,N]FeCl(2), with [N,N] = Cy-N=CR''-CR''=N-Cy (Cy = cyclohexyl, R''...

The discovery of a novel arylpalladium(II) reduction enables the synthesis of diarylmethanes via reductive benzylation. Benzyl chlorides were found to be the major source of hydride, acting as an alkylating agent and an aprotic surrogate for benzyl alcohol. This represents...
