We have carved a reputed niche in the industry for manufacturing and exporting Phthalimide Powder. It is utilized as a precursor to azo dyes, saccharin, and anthranilic acid. This compound can be synthesized by heating phthalic anhydride with aqueous ammonia solution. It is known to have chemical formula C8H5NO2 and molar mass of 147.13 g/mol. Phthalimide is an organic compound that can be used as a masked source of ammonia. It is considered as a good precursor to amines during chemical synthesis.
Has boiling point of 336 degrees Celsius
Appears white colored solid
Offers very low solubility in water
Alkyl phthalimides are useful precursors to amines in chemical synthesis, especially in peptide synthesis where they are used "to block both hydrogens and avoid racemization of the substrates".ALKYL Halides can be converted to the n-alkylphthalimide:
