Application

N-Hydroxysuccinimide can be used in the synthesis of N-hydroxysuccinimide ester via dehydration reaction in the presence of dicyclohexylcarbodiimide in carboxylic acid.
N-Hydroxysuccinimide has been used in the synthesis of intermediates such as:
  • N

  • -succinimidyl 3-(di-tert-butylfluorosilyl)benzoate
  • 4-[2,2-bis[(p-tolylsulfonyl)-methyl] acetyl]benzoic acid-NHS ester
  • N-succinimidyl 3-iodobenzoate

It has also been used in a protocol for the surface modification of microchannels of a microfluidic-integrated surface plasmon resonance (SPR) platform for the detection and quantification of bacterial pathogens.
Additive used in the carbodiimide method for improved amidations and peptide couplings.

Molecular monolayers made via reactions of alkenes with H-Si(111) are often referred to as “self-assembled” monolayers on silicon surfaces by analogy with thiol monolayers on gold. These monolayers are chemically robust.

Professor Aran (Claremont University, USA) thoroughly discusses the engineering of graphene based materials through careful functionalization of graphene oxide, a solution processable form of graphene.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
