General description

Sodium hydroxide, also known as lye and caustic soda, is a strong base used universally as a neutralization agent in the chemical industry, paper making, petroleum refining, cleaning compounds, and drain cleaners.

Application

Sodium hydroxide can be used as:
  • A reagent in the gold-catalyzed selective oxidation of glycerol to glyceric acid.
  • A catalyst for the cross-dehydrogenative coupling of alcohols and hydrosilanes to synthesize silyl ethers.
  • A base in the transition-metal free Sonogashira-type couplings of aryl halides and alkynes to synthesize ynones in the presence of PEG as a phase-transfer agent.

Severe quantitative loss of protein is often observed in high-resolution two-dimensional electrophoresis of membrane proteins, while the resolution is usually not affected. To improve the solubility of proteins in this technique, we tested denaturing cocktails containing various detergents and chaotropes.
