Application

  • Research on the Oxidative Chlorination of Toluene to Benzyl Chloride by Chloride Ion: This study explores the preparation of benzyl chloride through oxidative chlorination under LED blue light, achieving a 40% yield (Y Bai, X Cheng, A Zheng, H Shen, 2019).
  • Tertiary amines nucleophilicity in quaternization reaction with benzyl chloride: Investigates the kinetics of the quaternization reaction of tertiary amines with benzyl chloride, providing insights into reaction mechanisms and conditions (KS Yutilova, SG Bakhtin, OM Shved, et al., 2015).
  • Synthesis and inhibition profiles of N-benzyl-and N-allyl aniline derivatives against carbonic anhydrase and acetylcholinesterase–A molecular docking study: Focuses on the synthesis of N-benzyl derivatives and their biological activity, utilizing benzyl chloride as a key intermediate in the synthesis process (I Mahmudov, Y Demir, Y Sert, Y Abdullayev, et al., 2022).
