General description

Lithium diisopropylamide solution (LDA) is a sterically hindered non-nucleophilic strong base widely used in organic synthesis.

Application

Lithium diisopropylamide solution (LDA) can be used:
  • As an initiator in the anionic polymerization of D,L-lactide and methyl methacrylate.
  • To facilitate ester enolization.
  • To convert carboxylic acids to enediolate intermediates for preparing trifluoromethyl ketones.
  • In ortho-lithiation of arylsulfonyloxazolidinones to prepare N-substituted saccharin analogs.
  • To catalyze ortholithiation and Fries rearrangement of aryl carbamates.
  • As a promoter in the isomerization of allylic ethers to (Z)-propenyl ethers.

Packaging

The 25 mL Sure/Seal bottle is recommended as a single-use bottle. Repeated punctures will likely result in decreased performance of product.
