Cerium(III) chloride heptahydrate, 99%


Proprietà chimiche

Peso formula
372.60 (246.48anhy)
Air Sensitive & Hygroscopic
Soluble in alcohol, water, and acetone. Slightly soluble in tetrahydrofuran.


Cerium(III) chloride heptahydrate is used in the preparation of allylsilanes from esters. It is used as a reducing agent in organic synthesis in place of sodium borohydride. In Luche reaction, carvone gives selectively allylic alcohol.


Air sensitive. Hygroscopic. Incompatible with strong acids and strong oxidizing agents.


Reagent for selective cleavage of MEM ethers (see 2-Methoxyethoxymethyl­ chloride, L01050 ) under mild conditions: Org. Lett., 3, 1149 (2001).

Useful in modifying the reactivity of Sodium borohydride, 35788 , allowing selective reduction of ketones in the presence of aldehydes: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 101, 5848 (1979), and giving increased selectivity for 1,2-reduction of enones to allylic alcohols: J. Chem. Soc., Chem. Commun., 601 (1978); cyclohexenones can be reduced in an alkyl alcohol to give the alkyl allylic ether in high yield: Pol. J. Chem., 69, 1655 (1995).

With a catalytic amount of NaI in acetonitrile, dioxolanes (ethylene acetals) are deprotected to the parent carbonyl compounds: J. Org. Chem., 62, 4183 (1997), as are 4-methoxybenzyl ethers: J. Org. Chem., 64, 5696 (1999), and allyl ethers: Tetrahedron Lett., 40, 7293 (1999), to the parent alcohols. With a stoichiometric amount of NaI, alcohols can be converted to alkyl iodides: J. Org. Chem., 65, 2830 (2000), aryl alkyl ethers undergo dealkylation to phenols: Chem. Lett., 738 (2000), and selective deprotection of N-Boc protected tert-butyl amino acid esters can be achieved: J. Org. Chem., 66, 4430 (2001). Also deprotects the tert-butyl ethers of alcohols: Adv. Synth. Catal., 348, 905 (2006). For a review of the CeCl3•nH2O/NaI system,as an efficient, water-tolerant Lewis Acid promoter in organic synthesis, see: Synlett, 2101 (2003).

In combination with Zn in acetonitrile, promotes the Reformatsky reaction of Ethyl­ bromofluoroacetate, B21579 : J. Org. Chem., 67, 72 (2002).

For preparation of the anhydrous reagent and its use in combination with organolithium or Grignard reagents to suppress side reactions with carbonyl compounds, see: Org. Synth., 76, 228 (1998).

For a brief feature on uses of this reagent, see: Synlett, 1935 (2002).
