General description

Bismuth(III) nitrate pentahydrate is a non-toxic, inexpensive, easy to handle and air insensitive reagent, commonly used in organic synthesis with a wide range of applications.

Application

Bismuth(III) nitrate pentahydrate may be used in the following processes:
  • Conversion of thioamides and thioureas to their oxo derivatives.
  • Transformation of aromatic aldehydes to carboxylic acids under microwave and solvent free conditions.
  • Synthesize coumarins by Pechmann condensation under solvent free conditions.
  • As a precursor in the synthesis of pure and lanthanum-modified bismuth ferrite (BFO) ceramics.
  • As a nitrating agent in the synthesis of methyl nitramino-2,4,6-trinitrobenzenes under microwave irradiation.
  • As a catalyst in the preparation of 4-amino-5-pyrimidine carbonitrile and pyrimidinone derivatives.
  • Synthesis of glycosides by Fischer glycosylation of unprotected sugars.
  • Synthesis of bismuth oxide (Bi2O3) nanoparticles.
  • Oxidation of 4-substituted Hantzsch 1,4-dihydropyridines.
  • Selective oxidation of sufides to sulfoxides.
