Structure

Applications

1,4-Dibromobutane is used as an intermediate involved in the synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredient for e.g. Bifemelane an antidepressant and other organic compounds.
Also used in the production of following intermediates:
* 1-(4-Methoxybutyl)hydrazine
* 1,4-Bis(diphenylphosphino)butane
* 4-Phenoxybutanoic acid
* 1,4-Dimethoxybutane
It is used in the investigation of metabolism of two halopropanes such as 1,3-Dichloropropane and 2,2-Dichloropropane.
It acts as a reagent to prepare Diazadioxa oxovanadium(IV) macrocyclic complexes.
It can be used for the alkylation of, for example, organolithium compounds or for the preparation of Grignard compounds.
