7-BroMo-9,9-diMethyl-2-fluorenol (BDF-9) is a colorless liquid that is used as an intermediate in the chemical industry. It is an important starting material for the production of a wide range of organic compounds. It is typically used in the pharmaceutical, dye, and agrochemical industries.
BDF-9 is an aromatic compound that contains a seven-membered bromine ring and two methyl substituents. It has a melting point of 54°C and a boiling point of 125°C. Its solubility in water is very low (less than 0.1 g/L).
BDF-9 is synthesized by a reaction between 1,3-dibromopropane and 2-fluorenol in an organic solvent. The reaction produces a mixture of BDF-9 and its isomer, 9,9-dibromo-2-fluorenol (DBF-9). The BDF-9 is then separated from the DBF-9 by distillation.
BDF-9 is a versatile chemical intermediate and is used to produce a wide range of organic compounds. It is used to synthesize a variety of pharmaceuticals, such as antibiotics, antifungals, and antiviral drugs. It is also used to produce a variety of dyes, including indigo and rhodamine. BDF-9 is also used to produce agrochemicals, such as herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides.
BDF-9 is highly reactive and should be stored in a cool, dry place. It should be handled with care and all safety precautions should be taken when handling, storing, and disposing of this compound.
