Applications

Potassium tert-pentyloxide is a strong, hindered base used in combination with lithium diisopropyl amide to generate a superbase for the selective metallation of the aralkyl system at the 6-position of protected estradiols. It is used in organic synthesis, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, colorants and aroma chemicals. It acts as a catalyst in polymerization and isomerizations.

Notes

Air and moisture sensitive. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents and acids. Reacts violently with water.
