Tetra-n-butylammonium hydroxide, 40% w/w aq. solution is used as a phase-transfer catalyst in organic synthesis especially for alkylation and condensation reactions. It is used as a curing accelerator for epoxy resins. It is also used in preparation of dichlorocarbene from chloroform.
Useful base, either as the aqueous or methanolic (see following entries) solution, compare Benzyltrimethylammonium hydroxide, A14927, for a variety of alkylation and condensation reactions; see, e.g.: Synth. Commun., 13, 927 (1983). Forms salts with many anions which may then be extracted into organic solvents: Acta Chem. Scand.: 23, 2202, 2203, 2204 (1969).
