Applications

2-Methylimidazole is used as a raw material for the preparation of nitroimidazole antibiotics, which is useful in combat anaerobic bacterial and parasitic infections. It acts as a ligand in coordination chemistry. It is also employed as a hardener or accelerator for epoxy resin and auxiliary agent for textile dyes. Further, it acts as a catalyst for refolding of enhanced colored fluorescent protein. It is also useful as a building block in the synthesis of biologically active compounds. In addition to this, it is used as an active pharmaceutical ingredient intermediate such as metronidazole and dimetridazole.

Notes

Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, acids, acid chlorides and acid anhydrides.
