Description

General description

2-Methyl-1-indanone, a α-benzocycloalkenone, is a derivative of 1-indanone. Its synthesis has been reported. The enzymatic dynamic kinetic resolution (DKR) of racemic 2-methyl-1-indanone has been studied. The asymmetric α-arylation and hydroxymethylation of 2-methyl-1-indanone has been reported. It participated in the synthesis of 2-methyl-6-carboxyazulene.

Application

2-Methyl-1-indanone may be used as a starting material in the synthesis of β-benzocycloalkenone. It may be used in the synthesis of the following:
• cyclohex-2-en-1-yl 2-methyl-1H-inden-3-yl carbonate
• 2-hydroxy-2-methyl-1-indanone
• O-alkoxycarbonylation of lithium enolates

Packaging

1, 5, 25 g in glass bottle
