Alkali Metal Alkoxides (Alcoholates)

Alkali metal alkoxides (a.k.a. alcoholates) are strong bases commonly used in reactions that require a selective deprotonation step including: alkylation, arylation, acylation, solvolysis of esters, condensation, elimination, isomerization, rearrangements, transfer hydrogenation, Wittig reactions, and redox reactions. Callery’s alkoxides contain very low hydroxide levels which helps maximize yield and minimize by-products. Visit our Knowledge Center for information on solubility of these bases in various solvents and selectivity in published reactions. A wide range of nucleophilic and non-nucleophilic alkoxides are available for your application.
