Organolithium

Shop Organolithium Compounds for Organic Synthesis

Organolithium compounds, strong bases and nucleophiles, gained outstanding importance as key intermediates and powerful reagents in organic synthesis, such as the formation of chiral 2-substituted piperidines. Therefore, since the discovery by Schlenk and Holtz, lithiation chemistry has grown into a well established technique also receiving attention in modern industrial synthesis. The butyllithium isomers n-butyllithium, chiral sec-butyllithium, and t-butyllithium are widely used in organic synthesis respectively as a polymerization initiator, a source of sec-butyl carbanions, and as a strong base in Grignard reactions. Highly stereochemically enriched organolithium compounds are versatile and sought-after synthetic intermediates in stereoselective syntheses.
