Potassium phthalimide is used as an intermediate in the synthesis of N-alkylated phthalimides, which is involved in the preparation of primary amines (Gabriel synthesis) by the hydrolysis reaction. It is also used as an intermediate for synthetic indigo, pigments, dyes and pharmaceuticals. Further, it is employed as an organocatalyst for the cyanosilylation of various carbonyl compounds under extremely mild conditions. In addition to this, it serves as a reagent for the transformation of allyl- and alkyl halides into protected primary amines.
