Applications
Phase transfer catalyst Tetra-n-butylammonium bromide is used as a phase transfer catalyst for the preparation of lactones by cyclization of potassium salt of µ-bromocarboxylic acids and beta-lactones from beta-bromoacid by cyclization. It is also involved in the Curtius rearrangement, N-alkylation of aromatic carboxamides. It plays an important role as an ionic liquid in the regioselective O-alkylation reactions. It is also used in the preparation of polymer solar cells and single component green-light emitting electrochemical cells.
