Trimethylsilyl trifluoromethanesulfonate is used to prepare powerful Lewis acid, difluoroboron triflate etherate in acetonitrile solvent. It is also used as a reagent in a Dieckmann-like cyclization of ester-imides and diesters. Further, it is used in the conversion of carbonyl compounds to their enol ethers. It is also employed for chemical glycosylation reactions. Its reactivity is similar to trimethylsilyl chloride and is also involved in organic synthesis.


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


Trialkylsilyl perfluoroalkanesulfonates are highly reactive silylating agents (see Appendix 4) and Lewis acids: Synthesis, 1 (1982); Adv. Silicon Chem., 1, 189 (1991).

Amides can be N,O-disilylated with TMSOTf: Org. Synth. Coll., 9, 516 (1998). For conversion of carbonyl compounds to silyl enol ethers, see, e.g.: J. Org. Chem., 58, 1449 (1993); Org. Synth. Coll., 9, 548 (1998). The reaction rate in triethylamine is almost 109 times faster than with TMS chloride: Liebigs Ann. Chem., 1718 (1980).

In general, TMSOTf has a much greater tendency to give C-silylation than TMS chloride. With esters C-silylation usually predominates: Synthesis, 867 (1977); Liebigs Ann. Chem., 816 (1983). Nitriles are C-silylated: Synthesis, 636 (1977); Synth. Commun., 18, 2111 (1988). Electron-rich alkenes, e.g. ketene acetals, as well as electron-rich aromatics such as indoles and pyrroles also undergo C-silylation: Synthesis, 928, 929 (1984):

tert-Butyl esters are cleaved directly to trimethylsilyl esters. Benzyl esters are unaffected, permitting selective cleavage: Synthesis, 545 (1980).

TMSOTf has numerous applications as a Lewis acid catalyst, notably in mediating, under very mild conditions, crossed aldol condensations between silyl enol ethers and acetals: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 102, 3248 (1980); Tetrahedron, 44, 4259 (1988); Org. Synth. Coll., 9, 642 (1998).
