Description

Application

Octylamine is mainly used to synthesize amphiphilic copolymers for polymer coating of quantum dots (QDs) to make them water-soluble.
Other applications:
• Synthesis of 2-cyano-N-octylacetamide by reacting with ethyl cyanoacetate.
• To induce uniformity for synthesizing uniform ultrathin metal sulfide nanostructures.

Packaging

5, 100, 500 g in glass bottle
