Frequently Asked Questions 
Q: What is Sodium Tert-Butoxide?
A: Sodium Tert-Butoxide is a compound with the chemical formula (CH3)3CONa. It is a strong base and a non-nucleophilic base. It is flammable and sensitive to humidity. In the chemical literature it is sometimes written as sodium butoxide. Its reactivity is similar to that of the more common potassium tert-butoxide. This compound can be produced by treating tert-butanol with sodium hydride.
Q: Safety Information and Safety Terms?
A: Sodium Tert-Butoxide is highly flammable, irritating to the respiratory system, and it reacts violently with water. Keep away from fire sources during storage and transportation, and keep the container dry. After accidental contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice. Keep away from sources of ignition. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye or face protection. In case of accident or if you feel unwell, seek medical advice immediately (show the label whenever possible). Keep container dry.
