General description

Lithium bis(trimethylsilyl)amide is commonly used in organic synthesis as a non-nucleophilic strong Bronsted base. It is soluble in most nonpolar solvents such as aromatic hydrocarbons, hexanes, and THF.

Application

Lithium bis(trimethylsilyl)amide can be used as a reagent:     
  • In the deprotonation and nucleophilic difluoromethylation reactions.
  • 3-methoxy substituted dihydropyrrole derivatives by reacting with aldehydes and lithiated methoxyallene via in situ formations of N-trimethylsilylated imines.  
  • In Darzens condensation and directed aldol condensation reactions.      
  • To synthesize poly(N-octyl-p-benzamide)s by chain-growth polycondensation of 4-octylaminobenzoic acid methyl ester.

Two-dimensional silica nanoparticle assemblies were obtained by deposition of bubble made from a surfactant solution containing nanoparticles onto hydrophobic silicon substrate. The morphologies of the nanoparticle assemblies can be finely controlled by several experimental parameters, including surfactant concentration, nanoparticle concentration
