NBD Fluoride



Product Description

NBD fluoride (4-Fluoro-7-nitrobenzo-2-oxa-1,3-diazole) is similar to NBD chloride (90045) except that the former is much more reactive toward amines. Both reagents are nonfluorescent until they react with primary or secondary amines to produce a fluorescent product. NBD chloride and NBD fluoride have been extensively used as derivatizing reagents for chromatography analysis of amino acids and low molecular weight amines.
