Bis(4-prop-2-ynoxyphenyl)methanone is a building block for chemical probe synthesis, typically employed for photoaffinity labeling in chemcial biology and medicinal chemistry. It contains a light-activated benzophenone (photoreactive group) and terminal alkyne tag (clickable handle). It also is employed for preparing a class of aromatic ether polymers containing perfluorocyclobutyl and triazole units via click chemistry.
