Nitration of arenes with controllable source of nitronium ions (factsheet)
An inexpensive and bench-stable nitrating reagent enables access to nitro(hetero)arenes under very mild reaction conditions. There are minimal side-products and the core of the reagent is recyclable.
Fields of application:
- Late stage functionalization of complex molecules
- Pharmaceuticals, dyes, explosives, agrochemicals
