Physical and chemical properties

At room temperature , 7-chloro-1-heptino is a liquid with a density lower than that of water, ρ ≃ 0.94 g / cm³ . Its boiling point is 165 ° C and its melting point is -22 ° C, both of which are estimated values. The value of the logarithm of its partition coefficient , log P = 2,897, indicates that it is more soluble in nonpolar solvents than in polar solvents. In water , its solubility is approximately 150 mg / L.[3]


7-Chloro-1-heptin can be obtained by treating 1-chloro-5-iodopentane with dry tetrahydrofuran (THF) and HMPA at -30 ° C under nitrogen atmosphere . [ 4 ] It can also be prepared from 1-chloro-5-iodobutane and sodium acetylide in liquid ammonia . [ 5 ]


7-Chloro-1-heptin is a precursor in the synthesis of 10-hydroxyhexadec-7-ene-1-oic acid , making it react with n-butyllithium to form an organometallic compound , which in turn reacts with 1, 2-epoxyoctane . [ 5 ] It can also be used in the preparation of homologues and derivatives of 9-oxo-13-trans-prostenamide and 9-hydroxy-13-trans-prostenamide, compounds that show antimicrobial and hypotensive activity similar to prostaglandin . [ 6 ]

7-Chloro-1-heptin can be trimerized using a Ziegler catalyst prepared from titanium (IV) chloride and triisobutylaluminum . The product is a mixture of 1,3,5- and 1,2,4-tris (chloroheptyl) benzene. Treatment with sodium acetylide provides the corresponding triheptinylbenzenes. [ 7 ]
