Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Safety information?
A: Potassium Tert-Butoxide is soluble in tert-butanol, and is often used in the dehydrohalogenation reaction of halogenated hydrocarbons, and its solution is relatively stable. It can be obtained by evaporating tert-butanol under reduced pressure after reacting tert-butanol with potassium metal. Strong alkaline condensing agent, its alkalinity is stronger than sodium methoxide and sodium ethoxide.
It is widely used in condensation, rearrangement and ring-opening reactions of organic synthesis, generally using tert-butanol solution. It is an organic alkaline corrosive product, strong moisture absorption, should be sealed and stored, pay attention to fire prevention, sun protection and store in a cool, ventilated and dry place during storage and transportation
