Alkali metal alkoxides are moderately strong base reagents that are used in drug and chemical synthesis applications such as alkylation, arylation, acylation, solvolysis of esters, condensation, elimination, isomerization, rearrangements, transfer hydrogenation, Wittig reactions, and redox reactions. The reactivity can be fine-tuned to the desired reaction by correct choice of alkali metal and counterion. The wide range of properties and solubilities of the bases available from Callery allows for process optimization and high yields. Callery’s alkoxide bases contain very low hydroxide content to help maximize yield and minimize by-products. A wide range of nucleophilic and non-nucleophilic bases are available for your applications.
