Application

Sodium tert-butoxide can be used as:
  • A promoter for the synthesis of biaryls by C-H bond arylation of aromatic compounds with haloarenes.
  • A base in palladium catalyzed amination reactions.
  • A base in the synthesis of aryl tert-butyl ethers from unactivated aryl halides in presence of palladium catalyst.
  • In the desulfonylation of N-indoles and N-azaindoles.
  • As a base in the synthesis of sodium acrylates from olefins and CO2.
