Azulene is used as an additive in ointments. It is an active ingredient in cosmetics, shaving creams and other topicals. It is used as antioxidant and in anti-inflammatory activities. It is involved in the colorimetric determination of furfural. It acts as ligand for low valent metals and forms pi complexes with both cyclopentadienyl and cylcloheptatrienyl ligands in organometallic chemistry. It is also used as precursor for the preparation of (azulene)Mo2 (CO)6 and (azulene)Fe2 (CO)5.

This Thermo Scientific brand product was originally part of the Alfa Aesar product portfolio. Some documentation and label information may refer to the legacy brand. The original Alfa Aesar product / item code or SKU reference has not changed as a part of the brand transition to Thermo Scientific.
