Soluble in nitrobenzene, nitromethane, chloroform, hot acetone, liquid sulfur dioxide. Slightly soluble in dichloromethane. Insoluble in common organic solvents.

Applications

Trimethyloxonium tetrafluoroborate act as a avmethylating agent and activates C-X multiple bonds. It is involved in the esterification of polyfunctional carboxylic acids. It acts as a catalyst in the polymerization of cyclic sulfides and ethers. Further, it is used in Beckmann rearrangement of oximes.

Notes

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

Literature References

Trialkyloxonium salts, also known as Meerwein's salts, are powerful alkylating agents under mild conditions. For general reactions of trialkyloxonium salts, see Triethyl­oxonium tetrafluoroborate, A14420 . For a brief feature of their uses in synthesis, see: Synlett, 195 (2004).

Alkylation on S to promote leaving group ability has also been used in a synthesis of oxiranes from ß-hydroxy sulfides: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 95, 3429 (1973); J. Chem. Soc., Chem. Commun., 714 (1975).
