Sodium tert-butoxide is used as a strong base and a non-nucleophilic base. In organic synthesis, it serves as an intermediate in various reactions like condensation, rearrangement and ring-opening. Further, it finds use in agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, colorants, aroma chemicals, detergents and biodiesel. It acts as a catalyst in polymerization and isomerization reactions.
Preferred base, superior to KO-t-Bu or LiO-t-Bu, for promoting Buchwald's Pd catalyzed conversion of aryl bromides to arylamines: Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 34, 1316, 1348 (1995); J. Org. Chem., 61, 7240 (1996); Tetrahedron Lett., 39, 2219 (1998).
