Application

Tribenzylamine (TBA) is a tertiary amine which can be used :
  • As a nitrogen group source for the reactions involving C−N bond formation.
  • For the synthesis of imine i.e. N−benzylidene benzylamine by aerobic oxidative condensation.
  • As an extractant for the separation and determination of Cr(VI) and Cr(III) from wastewater.

TBA can also undergo debenzylation in the presence of ceric ammonium nitrate (CAN) to form dibenzylamine.
