Mercury(II) trifluoromethanesulfonate, 98%


Chemical Properties

Formula Weight
Melting point
Storage & Sensitivity
Moisture Sensitive. Ambient temperatures.
It is soluble in H2O and CH3CN, fairly soluble in CH3NO2 and CH2Cl2, insoluble in hexane, ether, and toluene.


Hg(OTf)2 exhibits remarkable catalytic activity for the hydroxylative cyclization of 1,6-enynes. Mercuric triflate is a very versatile reagent and has been used for several organic catalytic transformations including C-C bond forming cyclizations, alkyne hydrations, heterocycle synthesis and very recently in C-N bond forming reactions. Commonly used as the metal source for Lewis acid catalyzed asymmetric reactions.


Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Moisture Sensitive.
