Cerium(IV) trifluoromethanesulfonate, 98%


Chemical Properties

Formula Weight
Soluble in water.


Cerium(IV) trifluoromethanesulfonate, is used as a strong oxidizing agent, in the oxidation of benzyl alcohols and alkylbenzenes to aryl aldehydes and aryl ketones respectively. It can also be used as a catalyst for high-yield deprotection of tert-butyldimethylsilyl ethers


Hygroscopic. Store in a cool, dry place in a tightly closed containers. Stable under recommended storage conditions. Incompatible with oxidizing agents and moisture.
