1,3-Dimethyl-3,4,5,6-tetrahydro-2(1H)-pyrimidinone is clear colorless to slightly yellowish liquid
Versatile solvent employed in N-alkylation of chiral, primary amines, O-alkylation of aldoses, and in the synthesis of poly(aryl ethers).
1,3-Dimethyl-3,4,5,6-tetrahydro-2(1H)-pyrimidinone is a versatile solvent used in the N-alkylation of chiral and O-alkylation of aldoses. It is involved in the preparation of poly(aryl ethers). It is a cyclic urea and used as a polar aprotic organic solvent. Further, it reacts with trifluoro-methanesulfonic acid anhydride to prepare 2,2'-oxy-bis(1,3-dimethyl-tetrahydropyrimidinium) bis(trifluoromethanesulfonate).
1,3-Dimethyl-3,4,5,6-tetrahydro-2(1H)-pyrimidinone is a versatile organic solvent in and less toxic than HMPA. It is mainly applied in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals. DMPU is also used in the electronics industry.
