Additional recommended knowledge
Being a heterocyclic compound, benzothiazole finds use in research as a starting material for the synthesis of larger, usually bioactive structures. Its aromaticity makes it relatively stable, although as a heterocycle, it has reactive sites which allow for functionalization.
Many dyes, such as thioflavin, and pharmaceutical drugs, such as riluzole, have benzothiazoles as a structural motif.
