Description

Packaging

2 L in glass bottle

Application

2,6-Lutidine can be used as a base for the oxidation of α-CF3 alcohols to the corresponding carbonyl compounds in the presence of 4-acetamido-2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-1-oxoammonium tetrafluoroborate (Bobbitt′s salt) as oxidation reagent.
It can be used:
• As a promoter for catalytic asymmetric fluorination of α-cyanophosphonates in the presence of chiral Pd(II)-bisphosphine complexes.
• In combination with tert-butyldimethylsilyl triflate for the protection of tertiary alcohols and unreactive secondary alcohols.
• In combination with triethylsilyl trifluoromethanesulfonate for the conversion of acetals to the corresponding aldehydes in dichloromethane followed by workup in water.
