Applications

Succinimide is used in organic syntheses and in industrial silver plating processes. It is also used as anticonvulsant drugs such as ethosuximide, phensuximide and methsuximide. Further, it is used to form covalent bonds between proteins, peptides and plastics. In addition to this, it is used as an important raw material for the synthesis of heterocyclic compounds through N-acyliminium cyclizations.

Notes

Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, acids, bases and strong reducing agents.
