n-Hexyllithium, 33% in Hexane

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 byproduct of a deprotonation reaction is n-hexanes. n-Hexane 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.
