6-Bromoimidazo[1,2-a]pyridine, 98%


Chemical Properties

Formula Weight
Melting point
slightly soluble in water.


It is used in organic syntheses and as pharmaceutical intermediates. The best results were obtained with lactams that could be introduced on the 6-bromoimidazo[1,2-a]pyridine. 1,2-dihydro-5-imidazo [1,2-a]pyridin-6-yl-6-methyl-2-oxo-3-pyridinecarbonitrile hydrochloride monohydrate 6 was synthesized in 5 steps from 6-bromoimidazo[1,2-a] pyridine using [2- 14 C] cyanoacetamide as the source of the radiolabel.


Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents. Store at room temperature.
