tert-Butyldimethylsilyl chloride Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

tert-Butyldimethylsilyl chloride is a colorless or white solid that is soluble in many organic solvents but reacts with water and alcohols.It is an organosilicon compound that can be used as a versatile protecting reagent for alcohols, amines, amides, and various carboxylic acids.

Uses

t-Butyldimethylchlorosilane is useful as an anion trapping reagent. For example, TBDMSCl was found to be an efficient trap of the lithio α-phenylthiocyclopropane anion.When dichlorothiophene was treated with 2 equiv of n-butyllithium followed by 2 equiv of TBDMSCl the di-TBDMS-thiophene was isolated. The lithium anions of primary (eq 1) and secondary (eq 2) nitriles were trapped with TBDMSCl to give C,N-disilyl- and Nsilylketenimines in excellent yields.
Silyl stannanes have been prepared by trapping tin anions with TBDMSCl or other silyl chlorides. Alkynes treated with silyl stannanes and catalytic tetrakis(triphenylphosphine)palladium(0) give cis-silyl stannylalkenes in good yields.

Uses

tert-Butyldimethylchlorosilane is used to protect hydroxyl group in organic synthesis. It finds application in the synthesis of prostaglandin. It is also used as an auxiliary material for hypolipaemics such as lovastatin and simvastatin. It plays an important role in the preparation of isoxazolines N-oxides from alpha-bromonitroalkanes. It acts as a versatile protecting reagent for amines, amides and alcohols.

Preparation

tert-butyldimethylsilyl chloride (TBSCI, mp 86–89 °C) is expensive though it is readily prepared in high yield by the reaction of tert-butyllithium with dichlorodimethylsilane.

Definition

ChEBI: Tert-butyldimethylsilyl chloride is a silyl chloride consisting of a central silicon atom covalently bound to one chloro, one tert-butyl and two methyl groups. tert-Butyldimethylsilyl chloride is a derivatisation agent used in gas chromatography/mass spectrometry applications. It has a role as a chromatographic reagent.

Reactions

tert-Butyldimethylsilyl chloride reacts with alcohols in the presence of base to give tert-butyldimethylsilyl ethers:(Me3C)Me2SiCl + ROH → (Me3C)Me2SiOR + HCl
These silyl ethers hydrolyze much more slowly than the trimethylsilyl ethers.

Hazard

Moderately toxic.

Purification Methods

Fractionally distil it at atmospheric pressure. [Sommer & Tyler J Am Chem Soc 76 1030 1954, Corey & Venkateswarlu J Am Chem Soc 94 6190 1972, Beilstein 4 IV 4076.]
