Application

Dodecanoyl chloride aslo known as lauroyl chloride is an acid chloride that can be used as a reagent for the surface modification of:
  • Chitosans, by converting it into acylated chitosans for increasing solubility in organic solvents.
  • Microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) for improving dispersibility in biopolyamide nanocomposites.

It can also be used as a:
  • Starting material for the synthesis of (R)-3-aminotetradecanoic acid (iturinic acid).
  • Reagent for the preparation of (3,6-bis(dodecanamido)-2,7-dibromo-9-dodecyl-9H-carbazole).This amide intermediate can be further used in the synthesis of azomethine-bridged ladder-type poly( p-phenylene)s.
