Description

General description

Cobalt(II) chloride is an anhydrous cobalt salt. Cobalt(II) chloride participates in the synthesis of various esters in the presence of acetonitrile.

Application

Cobalt(II) chloride may be employed as a catalyst in the following studies:
• Acylation of various alcohols (primary and secondary).
• Acylation of various hydroxyl compounds (high selectivity).
• Regioselective ring-opening reaction of oxiranes.
• Coupling reactions of anhydrides or acid chlorides with thiols.
• Protection of aldehydes, via chemoselective dithioacetalization reaction.
• Solvent-free synthesis of β-enaminones and β-enamino esters.

The vapor-phase co-reductions with other metal halides by hydrogen results in finely divided intermetallics with applications as structural materials or compounds with useful thermoelectric, magnetic, and oxidation-resistance properties.
