High quality Tetramethylguanidine CAS 80-70-6 in stock
Tetramethylguanidine CAS 80-70-6 is an organic compound with the formula HNC(N(CH3)2)2. This colourless liquid is a strong base, as judged by the high pKa of it conjugate acid. It was originally prepared from tetramethylthiourea via S-methylation and amination, but alternative methods start from cyanogen iodide.
Tetramethylguanidine CAS 80-70-6 is mainly used as a strong, non-nucleophilic base for alkylations, often as a substitute for the more expensive DBU and DBN. Since it is highly water-soluble, it is easily removed from mixtures in organic solvents. It is also used as a base-catalyst in the production of polyurethane.
Tetramethylguanidine CAS 80-70-6 has a molecular formula of C5H13N3 and a molecular weight of 115.18. It could be supplied in commercial size with competitive price.
