ISOPENTYL NITRITE EXTRA PURE STABILIZED;Nitrite isoaMyl acetate (110-46-3) – 2;sopentyl nitrite;Isopentyl nitrite; stabilized with 0.2% anhyd. sodium carbonate
Isopentyl nitrite is used in the conversion of 2;6-disubstituted phenols to diphenoquinones and aminophenols to quinone diazides. It acts as an oxidant and nitrosating agent. It finds application in aromatic arylation; deamination of arylamines using tetrahydrofuran as a hydrogen donor. It is also useful for the preparation of benzyne using anthranilic acid. It is an antihypertensive and vasodilator to treat heart diseases such as angina and an antidote for cyanide poisoning. Further; it is used as a solvent and cleaning agent for a printed circuit board. In addition to this; it is considered to be a replacement for freon. Isopentyl nitrite has been used:
• as a radical initiator to functionalize multi-walled carbon nanotubes.
• as a reagent in the preparation of 4-carboxy-phenyl diazonium salt tetrafluoroborate.
• in synthesis of peroxynitrite (ONOO-).
