Punto di fusione
Soluble in water, ethanol, dimethyl sulfoxide and methanol. Sparingly soluble in hot chloroform. Insoluble in diethyl ether, benzene and hydrocarbon solvents.


Trimethylamine N-oxide dihydrate is used as an oxidizing agent in organic synthesis. It is also used to make quaternary ammonium compounds and a warning agent for flammable gas. Further, it acts as a flavoring agent or adjuvant. It serves as an oxidant for the catalytic osmium tetraoxide cis-hydroxylation of hindered olefins. In addition to this, it is used as a reactant for C-H bond cleavage and decarbonylating agent for solvent-free reactions.


Hygroscopic. Incompatible with acids, acid chlorides, acid anhydrides and oxidizing agents.


Reagent for the liberation of organics from their complexes with iron carbonyls. Partial oxidation of CO to CO2 takes place: J. Chem. Soc., Chem. Commun., 336 (1974).

Also oxidizes alkylboranes to alcohols, giving less interference with other functionality than the more usual H2O2: J. Org. Chem., 40, 1776 (1975).

Has been used in the oxidation of alkyl halides to aldehydes. For a procedure, including dehydration of the N-oxide by distillation of water with DMF, see: Org. Synth. Coll., 5, 872 (1973):

For an improved procedure using DMSO, see: Tetrahedron Lett., 31, 4825 (1990).

For use as a reoxidant in the catalytic cis-hydroxylation of alkenes with Osmium(VIII)­ oxide, 12103 , see: Tetrahedron Lett., 21, 449 (1980).

Deprotonation by LDA at low temperature gives the unstable azomethine ylide, which undergoes 1,3-dipolar addition, even with unactivated alkenes, to give pyrrolidines: J. Chem. Soc., Chem. Commun., 31 (1983):
