Application

Applications of octanoyl chloride include:
• Synthesis of (R)-2-propyloctanoic acid, a therapeutic agent for Alzheimer′s disease.
• Synthesis of a variety of N-n-octyl-D-gluconamide based organogels.
• Building 2-heptylbenzo[d]thiazole moiety to synthesize conjugated copolymer with fluorine, as cathode interlayer in inverted polymer solar cells (PSCs).
• Octanoyl chloride is one of the essential precursors in the total synthesis of (−)-mandelalide L, a marine macrolide that display significant cytotoxicity against human cancer cell lines.
