Azides safely used to synthesize diamines

Industry-academic team develops a mild, scaled-up method for handling hazardous reagents to produce key chemical intermediates
Department: Science & Technology
Keywords: Synthesis, reagents, green chemistry, safety, diamine

Academic researchers often develop organic synthesis methods that offer efficient new routes to industrially important chemicals. But many of these methods are considered untouchable in an industry setting because they involve hazardous reagents that can’t be safely handled on a larger scale or because they are cost-prohibitive to implement. Sometimes, though, a success story does come along.

An industry-academic collaboration led by Hao Xu of Georgia State University and Marino Nebuloni . . .
