General description

α-Methylbenzylamine is a nitrogen source that is widely used as a representative substrate to study the chemo-enzymatic kinetic resolution of primary amines.

Application

α-Methylbenzylamine can be used as a reactant for the synthesis of dihydro-5H-dibenz[c,e]azepinium salts by reacting with racemic biphenol derivatives.
It is used in the synthesis of o-fluorobenzylamines.
