A fluorinated heterocyclic building block

Used as a synthesis intermediate for Schiff bases, carbon nanodots and carbamates in application of APIs, OLEDs and antimicrobials


Specifications | MSDS | Literature and Reviews


3-Fluoro-4-morpholinoaniline (CAS number 93246-53-8) has a fluorinated aniline linked to a morpholine, a heterocycle featuring both amine and ether groups. By having the accessible primary amine, 3-fluoro-4-morpholinoaniline reacts with aldehyde to form Schiff bases. The Schiff base shows a better biofilm inhibition with IC50 (half maximal inhibitory concentration) of 12.97 μM, compared with linezolid (IC50 of 15.93 μM). 3-Fluoro-4-morpholinoaniline can also be modified for sulfonamide and carbamate derivatives that exhibit antimicrobial activity (minimum inhibitory concentration of 6.25-25.0 μg/mL).

4-Morpholinoaniline decorated phenylenediamine carbon nanodots show an improved photoluminescence quantum yield from 28.3% to 41.8%. The fluorinated 4-morpholinoaniline (3-fluoro-4-morpholinoaniline) can be applied to tune the emission wavelength of the carbon nanodots.
