Collaborate: Synthesis of Haloindenes

By October 25, 2022No Comments

FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of Florida International University’s new technology for the precursors in organic and biologically targeted syntheses. This technology is beneficial for the production of bulk chemicals. This includes the preparation of expensive 5-iodindene and unreported 7-iodindene in high yields utilizing readily available and cost-effective reagents and avoiding the use of expensive nitroindenes, unstable aminoindenes, and potentially explosive trifluoroperacetic acid. In addition, the technology can be extended for the preparation of various 4-, 5-, 6-, or 7-haloindenes. Finally, this technology is applicable to precursors in organic and biologically targeted syntheses.

In 2021, global specialty chemicals market was worth $595.3 billion and is expected to reach $824.1 billion by 2028. With increasing demand, this technology is able to provide a more effective form of chemical production.

Florida International University’s technology for the precursors in organic and biologically targeted syntheses is ready for collaboration, and they are looking for industry feedback on their research and potential future collaboration (licensing, partnerships, industry feedback, etc.). Is your company the right fit? If you’d be available for a conversation with the Florida International University team, you can schedule a time directly on their team’s calendar here.
