Hexamethyldisilazane Usage And Synthesis
Hexamethyldisilazane(HMDS) is an extremely versatile and strong silylating agent. It is primarily used for the protection of sensitive functional groups during chemical synthesis.One of the advantages of Hexamethyldisilazane over chlorosilanes is that no base is needed as a hydrochloric acid acceptor. It produces ammonia which escapes easily from the reaction mixture during silylation.
Hexamethyldisilazane is a bulk organo silicon compound, being a quite useful silanizing agent. It is a reagent for the preparation of trimethylsilyl derivatives. It can be used for silanizing the surface of silicon water, cellulose. It can also be used to dehydrate cells of biomaterials for scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The hexamethyldisilazane coatings on various nanoparticles make them be resistant to water contamination and flocculation during synthesis. It can also be used as a modifier to control the shape, formation of agglomerates surface area and pore size of silica particles. Moreover, it is an adhesion promoter for photoresist in photolithography, and is also useful in the pyrolysis-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry to enhance the detectability of compounds with polar functional groups.
bp 125 °C; d 0.765 g cm?3.
Deactivation of chromatographic support materials. In electronic industry as an adhesion promoter for photoresists on silicon.
Hexamethyldisilazane mainly used as methyl silane alkylation (such as amikacin, penicillin, cephalosporins and kinds of penicillin derivatives), hydroxyl protectants of antibiotics. It is used as surface treatment agent of diatomite, white carbon black, titanium and blond additives of photoresist in the semiconductor industry. It is used as treatment agent of tearing strength resistance. It is used as a solvent in organic synthesis and organometallic chemistry. It is used as an adhesion promoter for photoresist in photolithography. it is used for the preparation of trimethylsilyl ethers from hydroxy compounds. It is used as an alternative to critical point drying during sample preparation in electron microscopy. It is added to analyte to get silylated diagnostic products during pyrolysis in gas chromatography- mass spectrometry.
A reagent for the preparation of trimethylsilyl derivatives.
ChEBI: An N-silyl compound obtained from ammonia by replacement of two of the hydrogens with trimethylsilyl groups. Hexamethyldisilazane is a derivatisation agent used in gas chromatography mass spectrometry applications.
A liquid. Boiling point of 260°F. Flash point 77°F. May be toxic by ingestion. Irritates skin and eyes. Vapors are heavier than air. May emit highly toxic nitrogen oxide fumes when heated to decomposition. Used to make other chemicals.
Air & Water Reactions
Highly flammable. Moisture sensitive.
Hexamethyldisilazane reacts with many carbonyl containing organic compounds to generate gaseous ammonia. May be incompatible with isocyanates, halogenated organics, peroxides, phenols (acidic), epoxides, anhydrides, and acid halides. Flammable gaseous hydrogen may be generated in combination with strong reducing agents, such as hydrides.
Flammable, moderate fire risk.
Inhalation or contact with material may irritate or burn skin and eyes. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Vapors may cause dizziness or suffocation. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may cause pollution.
A possible impurity is Me3SiCl. Wash it well with pet ether and fractionate it through a vacuum jacketed column packed with Helipac using a reflux ratio of 10:1. [Langer et al. J Org Chem 23 50 1958, Beilstein 4 IV 4014.]
