Trimethylsilyl azide is used as an azidonation reagent for amines, amides, aldehydes and ketones. It is involved in the preparation of alfa- and beta-siloxy azides from carbonyl compounds and epoxides. It is also used in the preparation of heterocyclic compounds and also acts as an effective substitute for hydrazoic acid. Further, it is used in the Oseltamivir total synthesis.


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


A mild, convenient synthesis of alkyl azides involves SN2 reaction with the corresponding alkyl halide, phosphate or tosylate, promoted by TBAF: Synthesis, 376 (1995).

Non-explosive hydrazoic acid equivalent in many cycloaddition reactions: e.g. with alkynes to give 1,2,3-triazoles: Chem. Ber., 99, 2512 (1966), nitriles, catalyzed by Di-n-butyl­tin oxide, L14491 , to give tetrazoles: J. Org. Chem., 58, 4139 (1993).

Curtius reaction with acid halides gives isocyanates in one operation: Synth. Commun., 2, 227 (1972): Synthesis, 551 (1972); J. Org. Chem., 38, 2982 (1973). Similarly, pyridine-2,3-dicarboxylic anhydride is converted to 3-azaisatoic anhydride: Synthesis, 972 (1982):

In combination withSnCl4,ß-D-ribofuranosyl acetates are converted to azides: Carbohydr. Res., 232, 359 (1992). Similarly, reaction with tert-halides in the presence of tin(IV) chloride gives tert-azides, which can be converted to iminophosphoranes by Staudinger reduction with Triethyl­ phosphite, L00339 . Hydrolysis completes a one-pot sequence for the conversion of a tert-halide to the corresponding amine: Synthesis, 487 (1987).

In combination with triflic acid, is useful for the direct amination of aromatics. Aminodiazonium triflate is suggested as the active intermediate. Thus, benzene gives aniline in 95% yield and toluene gives a mixture of o- and p-toluidine: J. Org. Chem., 54, 1203 (1989). See also: Tetrahedron Lett., 32, 4321 (1991).

Mitsunobu reaction, in the presence of DIAD, with 1,2- and 1,3-diols leads to regioselective, stereospecific azidation to give predominantly the 2- or 3-azido alcohol with inversion of configuration: J. Org. Chem., 64, 6049 (1999).
