General description

Boron trichloride (BCl3) is a boron halide typically used as a reagent in organic synthesis for the cleavage of C-O bonds in ethers.

Application

Boron trichloride (BCl3) can be used as a reactant in the preperation of borazine-linked polymer [BLP-10(Cl)] by thermal decomposition with benzidine for gas storage and purification.

Boron trichloride has been found to promote selective deprotection of 1,2- or 1,3-cis oriented secondary benzyl ethers of per-benzylated C-glycosyl derivatives. The reactivity towards BCl(3) follows the order: C-4>or=C-2>C-6>C-3 for C-glucopyranosyl derivatives and C-3>or=C-4>C-6>C-2 for C-galactopyranosyl derivatives. Preparatively useful selective
