Keep Cold. Moisture Sensitive.
Soluble in ethanol and methanol.


tert-Butyl carbazate is used in a palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling with vinyl halides to prepare N-Boc-N-alkenylhydrazines. It is utilized in solid phase peptide synthesis and in the optical purity determination of alfa-amino aldehyde. It reacts with aldehydes to get hydrazones, which finds application as an intermediate in the synthesis of HIV-1 protease inhibitors. In addition to this, it is used as a starting material for the preparation of BOC-azide, sulfonic and carboxylic hydrazides.


Store in a cool place. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents and strong bases.

Literature References

Protected hydrazine derivative, permitting selective reaction at one N atom, followed by mild acidic cleavage of the Boc group. For preparation of, e.g. N-aminosuccinimide, free from the cyclic hydrazide, see: J. Org. Chem., 37, 2040 (1972). Similarly, reaction with carbonyl or sulfonyl halides, followed by cleavage with HCl, provides a route to monoacyl hydrazides: Synthesis, 244 (1980). It is also commonly used in the synthesis of aza-amino acids; see, for example: Synthesis, 141 (1991) and references therein.

Monoalkylhydrazines can be prepared via reduction of Boc-hydrazones with borane-THF, and cleavage with HCl: J. Org. Chem., 46, 5413 (1981).

Precursor of the somewhat unstable tert-butyl azidoformate, useful for introduction of the Boc protecting group, see: Org. Synth. Coll., 5, 157 (1973). Caution! Possible violent decomposition of this azide on heating.
