Description

General description

Tetrabutylammonium acetate is an effective alternative for sodium acetate (NaOAc) due to its good solubility in organic solvents.

Application

Tetrabutylammonium acetate (TBAAc) is a good source of nucleophilic acetate ion for SN2 substitution reactions. It is commonly used to displace sulfonates and allylic halides to get corresponding acetates. Additionally, TBAAc can also be used as a mild, soluble base in Sonogashira reaction and Heck arylation.

Packaging

10, 50 g in glass bottle

Other Notes

Reagent for the epimerization of hydroxyl groups; base-molten salt for directing Heck-type reactions
