n-Butyllithium in Toluene (10% Soln)

n-Butyllithium is a very strong base, exceedingly useful in organic synthesis. NBL has found particular utility in deprotonation and metal–halogen exchange reactions. NBL is also a very effective initiator of anionic polymerization of styrene and conjugated dienes. The synthesis of solution SBR and of styrenic thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs), in particular, is facilitated by NBL. References: The Chemistry of Organolithium Compounds, ed. Zvi Rappoport and Ilan Marek, Wiley, 2004, West Sussex, England.

n-Hexyllithium 33% in Hexanes (HxLi)

n-Hexyllithium is a non-pyrophoric strong base, primarily used in organic synthesis in deprotonation reactions and as a lithiation reagent. The advantage of this reagent is that the by-product of a deprotonation reaction is n-hexanes. n-Hexanes is less volatile and has a higher flash point than the n-butane generated from a deprotonation with n-butyllithium. 1) The Chemistry of Organolithium Compounds; Pergamon: Oxford, 1974; 2) Organolithium Methods; Academic Press: London, 1988.

sec-Butyllithium in Cyclohexane

sec-Butyllithium is a very strong base, exceedingly useful in organic synthesis. SBL has found particular utility in the ortho metallation of aromatic substrates. SBL is also a very effective initiator of anionic polymerization of styrene and conjugated dienes. The synthesis of solution SBR and of styrenic thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs), in particular, is facilitated by SBL. References: The Chemistry of Organolithium Compounds, ed.

Stabilized Lithium Metal Powder – SLMP®

Lectro® Max Powder (SLMP®) enables a new generation of Li-ion batteries by providing an independent source for lithium, which opens up choices for both anode and cathode materials. Introducing lithium in a stabilized powder form with the anode host material, such as Si and Sn-based, to form a lithium-ion system leads to a higher energy battery with more efficient utilization of lithium. Using non-lithium providing cathodes like manganese, vanadium or other metal oxides and metal fluorides that are more overcharge tolerant and potentially have lower costs, leads to safer and cheaper batteries. When used in combination, these materials can potentially double the energy density of the current lithium-ion battery. Lectro® Max Powder (SLMP®) could be used to replace thin lithium foil applications and in Fusion Research Devices to improve plasma performance.

tert-Butyllithium (TBL) in Heptane

This formulation of t-Butyllithium in Heptane, while still pyrophoric, has a significantly higher flash point than the traditional pentane formulation. TBL is particularly useful in lithium-halogen exchange reactions. TBL can be used as a strong base in organic synthesis. TBL is more reactive than the t-butyl Grignard reagent in nucleophilic additions to carbonyl and nitrile substrates. TBL is also useful in the displacement of halide or alkoxide ligands of inorganic compounds, such as Phosphorus, Silicon, Tin, and Titanium. References: The Chemistry of Organolithium Compounds, ed.
