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.
