Applications

tert-Butyl chloride plays an important role as a starting material to perform nucleophilic substitution reactions in order to prepare alcohol and alkoxides salts. It is used as an alkylating agent for the introduction of tert-butyl group and is also involved in Friedel-Crafts reactions. It is employed as an intermediate for the synthesis of agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals.

Notes

Hygroscopic. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents and strong bases.
