sec-Butyllithium in Cyclohexane
Market: Fine Chemicals
SubMarket: Alkyllithiums and Aryllithiums
CAS #: 598-30-1
Description: Used as a strong base in organic synthesis to improve yields and throughput in a reaction. SBL has found particular utility in the ortho metallation of aromatic substrates. SBL is also a very effective initiator of anionic polymerization of styrene and conjugated dienes. The synthesis of solution SBR and of styrenic thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs), in particular, is facilitated by SBL. References: The Chemistry of Organolithium Compounds, ed.
