Descrição geral

Cesium carbonate is a powerful inorganic base widely used in organic synthesis. It is a potential chemoselective catalyst for the reduction of aldehydes and ketones to alcohols. It is employed as base for the Heck coupling reaction of 4-trifluoromethyl-1-chlorobenzene and aryl chlorides.


Cesium carbonate can be used as a base in C-C and C-N cross-coupling reactions such as Suzuki−Miyaura, Heck, and Buchwald-Hartwig amination reactions. It is also used as a base in alkylation reactions.
Promotes the efficient O-alkylation of alcohols to form mixed alkyl carbonates.

  1. Which document(s) contains shelf-life or expiration date information for a given product?

    If available for a given product, the recommended re-test date or the expiration date can be found on the Certificate of Analysis.

  2. How do I get lot-specific information or a Certificate of Analysis?

    The lot specific COA document can be found by entering the lot number above under the "Documents" section.

  3. What is Product 441902, Cesium Carbonate, soluble in?

    According to the chemicals encyclopedia published by the Royal Society of Chemistry:13th Edition this product is extremely soluble in water and alcohol.  It is also soluble in ether.

  4. What are the impurities present in Product 441902, Cesium Carbonate?

    We have performed any impurity profiling or testing on this product.  However, it has been noted that some of the trace metallic impurities could include, but are not limited to, the following: Lithium, Sodium, Potassium, Rubidium, Aluminum, Barium, Calcium, Chromium, Iron, Magnesium, Nickel, and Silicon.

  5. Product 441902, Cesium Carbonate, is very hygroscopic, how should it be handled in order to preserve the compound?

    When we package this product, it is packaged and sealed under a total nitrogen atmosphere to avoid any absorption of water from the atmosphere.  It would be optimal to do the same.  If you do not have a glove box or glove bag we do offer Aldrich Atmosbags that can used to help provide an inert atmosphere for compounds such as Cesium Carbonate. One could also flush the head space of the bottle before sealing it to help prevent the material from absorbing moisture during storage.
