Tetra-n-butylammonium fluoride, 1M soln. in THF


Proprietà chimiche

Peso formula
Punto di infiammabilità
Miscible with terahydrofuran, acetonitrile, dimethyl sulfoxide and organic solvents.


Tetra-n-butylammonium fluoride, 1M soln. in THF is used as a reactant for the preparation of triple monoamine reuptake inhibitors as a new generation of antidepressants, oligoribonucleotides with phosphonate-modified linkages, conjugated dienoic acid esters using Suzuki coupling reactions and polyacetylenic glucosides. It plays an important role in aryl alkyl alcohols through Nozaki-Hiyama allylation catalyzed by chiral bipyridyldiol ligands and chromium trichloride. It is also used as a catalyst for the silylation reactions. In addition, it is used as a source of fluoride ion in organic solvents as well as for the deprotection of silyl ether groups.


Store in a cool place. Hygroscopic. Keep the container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible with oxidizing agents and oxygen.


Mild catalyst for the silylation of OH by silazanes: Tetrahedron Lett., 35, 8409 (1994), or by hydrosilanes and disilanes: Tetrahedron Lett., 35, 8413 (1994). See Appendix 4.

Specific reagent for the cleavage of silyl ethers, including TBDMS: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 94, 6190 (1972), (see tert-Butyl­dimethyl­chlorosilane, A13064), as well as the more stable TBDPS: Org. Synth. Coll., 9, 4 (1998), and TIPS: J. Org. Chem., 45, 4797 (1980); (see also tert-Butyl­diphenyl­chlorosilane, A12721 and Chlorotriisopropyl­silane, A17376).

Ester enolates can be displaced from silicon, and trapped by reaction with carbonyl compounds without ɑ-hydrogens: Tetrahedron Lett., 1699 (1976). Under similar conditions, ketones with ɑ-hydrogens are converted under kinetic control to their silyl enol ethers with high (Z)-stereoselectivity (see Ethyl­ (trimethyl­silyl)­acetate, A17707): J. Am. Chem. Soc., 98, 2346 (1976); Org. Synth. Coll., 7, 512 (1990):

For the cleavage of disilanes to give "metal-free" silyl anions, see Hexamethyl­disilane, A13155.

Promotes the directed aldol condensation of silyl enol ethers with aldehydes at low temperatures under very mild conditions: J. Org. Chem., 48, 932 (1983); alkali metal fluorides give poor results.

Reagent for deprotection of N-Boc groups under mild conditions: Tetrahedron Lett., 43, 589 (2002).

Many other examples exist where the reagent acts as a base in organic synthesis:
