Bicyclo[3.2.0]hept-2-en-6-one, 97%


Chemical Properties

Formula Weight
Air Sensitive


Bicyclo[3.2.0]hept-2-en-6-one is widely utilized to study enantioselective Baeyer-Villiger oxidation of (±)-cis-bicyclo(3.2.0)hept-2-en-6-one. It is used in the synthesis of a series of chalcone derivatives by reacting with arylaldehydes. It is also used to analyze the extremophile enzymes (monooxygenase and hydrolases) in microorganisms which are isolated from a deep-water petroleum reservoir and at high temperatures using fluorogenic assays and multibioreactions.


Air sensitive. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
