General description

Benzylmagnesium chloride is an organometallic compound that acts as a Lewis acid and a strong base.

Application

Benzylmagnesium chloride (Grignard reagent) can be used as an alkylating reagent:
  • For alkylating quinolyl-functionalized Cp−chromium(III) complexes which are used as precursors for the preparation of active olefin polymerization catalysts.
  • In the synthesis of 2,3-disubstituted benzopyran-4-ones, 6-chloro-8-methylpurine derivative, and phenylalanine derivatives.
