Storage & Sensitivity
Keep Cold. Moisture Sensitive.
It hydrolyzes with water.


Benzyl isocyanate, is used as a protected ammonia equivalent in the stereo selective ring-opening of chiral 2,3-epoxy alcohols (from Sharpless asymmetric epoxidation). The key step in the sequence involves intramolecular cyclization of the carbamate intermediate. It is also used in a multicomponent, stereospecific synthesis of 1,3-oxazinane-2,4-diones employing an Al-salph complex.


Moisture& heat Sensitive. Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Keep away from alcohols, amines.
