Storage & Sensitivity
Keep Cold. Light Sensitive.
Soluble in methanol (very faint turbidity.)


It is employed as a reactant in preparation of indolylquinoxalines by condensation reactions, reactant in preparation of alkylindoles via Ir-catalyzed reductive alkylation, reactant in arylation reactions using a palladium acetate catalyst, reactant in enantioselective Friedel-Crafts alkylation and reactant in stereoselective synthesis of cyclopentaindolones via stereoselective [3+2] cyclopentannulation. As an indole derivative shown to be an effective inhibitor of the chlorinating activity of myeloperoxidase (MPO). Used in the metabolic synthesis of arylacetic acid anti-inflammatory synthesis.


Store away from oxidizing agents. Keep the container tightly closed and place it in a cool, dry and well ventilated condition.
