Description

General description

6-Methyl-1-indanone is a substituted indanone. It has been synthesized in high quantum yields by the photolysis of α-chloro-2′,5′-dimethylacetophenone. It is formed as one of the photoproduct during the irradiation of 2,5-dimethylphenacyl (DMP) esters. It is reported to be one of the semivolatile component of lamina cigarette smoke.

Application

6-Methyl-1-indanone was used as a starting material for the synthesis of branched alkyl indanes (BINs).

Packaging
