The bi-naphthyl structure serves as an important ligand for asymmetric synthesis in organic chemistry, especially in Diels-Alder reactions, carbonyl addition and reductions.
Some key applications are:
|(S)-Binol by resolution of the mother binol|
|(R)-Binol in the same resolution process|
|Aluminium Lithium bi(binaphthol) (its (R)-enantiomer)|
A very recent but path-breaking application of Binol has been in preparation of one of the Covid-19 vaccines being developed and supplied from India.

Dichloroacetic acid is an organochlorine compound and a corrosive liquid with ammoniacal odor. Its natural occurrence is in seaweeds.
2-Ethyl-4-methylimidazole is one of the most common and widely used curing agent in variety of epoxy resins due to high curing efficiency, intermediate curing temperature of epoxy/imidazole resin system and excellent mechanical property of curing product.
Indole-3-carbinol is a colorless powder with a characteristic odor.
The product finds uses in various fields by virtue of the indole ring, which is active and mainly imparts medicinal properties to the molecule. It is also an important dietary supplement.
Benzyl nicotinate has a role as a vasodilator agent and is also generally used in cosmetics and drugs. It is an active substance from the group of rubefacients that stimulates blood circulation. Also used in veterinary as well as in human medicines.
2-Methylimidazole is a monomethylated imidazole that can be used as a building block in synthesis of a wide range of biologically active compounds. Synthesized through Radziszewski reaction involving acetaldehyde, glyoxal, and ammonia, it is a sterically hindered imidazole that is used to simulate the coordination of histidine to heme complexes. It is is highly soluble in polar organic solvents and water.
Metallic stearates are esters of stearic acid. These compounds consist of both long-chain fatty acids and a metal ion. Their various characteristics, such as metal content and particle size, can be manipulated for different markets and applications.
Permethrin is an insecticide in the pyrethroid chemical family. Being a neurotoxic synthetic pyrethroid, it acts on the nervous system of insects. It interferes with sodium channels to disrupt the function of neurons and causes muscles to spasm, culminating in paralysis and death of arthropod. It affects sodium transport across the neuronal membranes in arthropods, thus causing depolarization. It is a mixture of a cis -trans isomer.
Acetonitrile (ACN) is a highly polar, volatile, colorless liquid with ethereal odor and is the simplest organic nitrile widely used as a solvent.
The nitrile group constitutes active part of the molecule. It participates in various reactions that lead to number of nitrogen containing organic molecules.
