Tetrabutylammonium Fluoride (TBAF) | CAS# 87749-50-6
SACHEM offers Tetrabutylammonium Fluoride (TBAF) as a trihydrate crystal which provides the following features:
- Minimum water content (only 3 mols of water for each mol of TBAF)
- Easily soluble in organic solvents for increased reactivity in a variety of reaction systems
- “Anhydrous” source of fluoride (when dissolved and dried in a solvent) for increased accessibility
- Non-nucleophilic base for use in base-catalyzed reactions
- Strong desilylation agent for TBDMS (tert-butyldimethylsilyl)-protected alcohols
TBAF Product Availability:
Our global network of facilities and seamless logistical support can supply TBAF anywhere in the world, consistently, reliably and at various quantities.
- Commercial scale manufacturing capability in bulk quantities
- Packaging of TBAF trihydrate 25 kg and 50 kg fiber drums
