n-Butyllithium Properties


Molecule Structure Image



n-Butyllithium is an organolithium reagent. It is widely used as a polymerization initiator in the production of elastomers such as polybutadiene or styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS). It exists as a cluster both in the solid state and in a solution.Its use as a strong base is referred to as metalation.
