The combination of properties like solubility in most of the solvents, volatility, catalytic property, and strong acidity with non-oxidizing nature makes it a widely used reagent in organic synthesis. Trifluoroacetic acid is an important building block in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and performance products. It is a precursor to many fluorinated compounds, and widely used in peptide synthesis and other organic transformations involving deprotection of t-BOC group. TFA finds use as an ion pairing agent in liquid chromatography, as a solvent in NMR spectroscopy and as a calibrant in mass spectrometry.


Trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) is a stable, hygroscopic, volatile and low-boiling organic acid. Storage in a cool place is recommended.


Strong organic acid, widely used in peptide synthesis to cleave N-Boc and t-butyl ester groups: Helv. Chim. Acta, 46, 870 (1963); see also Org. Synth. Coll., 9, 24, 268 (1998). For peptide reagents, see Appendix 6. For selective cleavage of Boc in the presence of Cbz (Z), using 70% TFA in water, see: Liebigs Ann. Chem., 749, 90 (1971). For selective cleavage of benzyl, benzhydryl and trityl ethers in the presence of ester functions, see: Synthesis, 249 (1983).

Also catalyzes the cleavage of t-butyl groups from t-butylphenols, by reverse Friedel-Crafts reaction: Tetrahedron, 29, 4003 (1973). Similarly, hindered aryl ketones or aromatic carboxylic acids undergo deacylation: Synthesis, 979 (1985).

Carrying out the Curtius rearrangement of acyl azides in TFA leads directly to the trifluoroacetamide, which can be readily hydrolyzed to the free amine: Synthesis, 38 (1983).

With sodium nitrite, has been used for the cleavage of tosylhydrazones: Synthesis, 207 (1979); for nitrosation of anisole and derivatives, avoiding possible loss of the alkyl group: Acta Chem. Scand., 44, 152 (1990); for diazotization of weakly basic arylamines such as pentafluoroaniline or 3,5-dinitroaniline: Synthesis, 566 (1988); and in the presence of formamide, for deamination of arylamines: J. Chem. Soc., Perkin 1, 873 (1986).

For use of TFA as a catalyst in the Meerwein-Ponndorf-Verley reduction, see Aluminum isopropoxide, 14007. For use in the modification of the reducing properties of borohydride, see Sodium borohydride, 13432. For use in the ionic hydrogenation, see Triethyl­silane, A10320.
