N,N’-diisopropylcarbodiimide (C7H14N2) is also known as 1,3-diisopropylcarbodiimide, N,N'-methanetetraylbis(2-propanamine), or N,N'-di(propan-2-yl)methanediimine. Its Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) number is 693-13-0. N,N’-diisopropylcarbodiimide is a carbodiimide compound having an isopropyl substituent on both nitrogen atoms. The compound is soluble in chloroform, methylene chloride, acetonitrile, dioxane, dimethylformamide and tetrahydrofuran.
The compound is used commercially in the chemical industry as a stabilizing agent, coupling agent, and condensing agent. Its key application is use as a peptide-coupling reagent. N,N’-diisopropylcarbodiimide is available in purities ranging from 97% to 99%. Key impurities are unreacted isocyanates and polymerized carbodiimides.
Compounds with the carbodiimide functionality are usually dehydrating agents and they are utilized to activate carboxylic acids toward amide or ester formation. Additives such as N-hydroxybenzotriazole or N-hydroxysuccinimide are added to increase yield and decrease side reactions. Carbodiimides can furthermore react with amines to form guanidines.
