Applications

Cyclopentanecarbonitrile is used as a substrate and reagent to investigate the specific activity of nitrile and amide hydrolyzing enzymes isolated from candida guilliermondii cells. It is also used to prepare cyclopentanecarboxamide by using tetrabutylammonium hydrogen sulfate as a catalyst in the presence of reagents such as aqueous hydrogen peroxide and sodium hydroxide.

Notes

Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents and strong bases.
