Applications

Ethyl chloroformate is used as derivatization reagent to investigate stereochemical conversion of chiral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs during derivatization reaction. It is also used with ammonia and cyanuric chloride to convert carboxylic acids to nitriles. It is used to develop flexible template strategy for the generation of nanometer-scale templates via dip-pen nanolithography.

Notes

Protect from heat. Store away from moisture and oxidizing agents. Store under dry inert gas. Refrigerate. Incompatible with heat, moisture and oxidizing agents.
