General description

Lithium bis(trimethylsilyl)amide is a non-nucleophilic strong Brønsted base, which is generally soluble in most of the nonpolar organic solvents. It is most commonly employed in organic reactions.

Application

Base employed in generating enolates for the preparation of lactone precursors, pyranones, and cyclohexanes.
Used to catalyze the addition of phosphine P-H bonds to carbodiimides leading to phosphaguanidines. Also used in a novel three-step synthesis of disubstituted 1,2,5-thiadiazoles.

Reacting cesium fluoride with an equimolar n-hexane solution of lithium bis(trimethylsilyl)amide (LiHMDS) allows the isolation of CsHMDS (1) in 80% yield (after sublimation). This preparative route to 1 negates the need for pyrophoric Cs metal or organocesium reagents in its...

Copper chalcogenides find applications in different domains including photonics, photothermal therapy and photovoltaics. CuTe nanocrystals have been proposed as an alternative to noble metal particles for plasmonics. Although it is known that deviations from stoichiometry are a prerequisite for plasmonic...
