Radical carbon-bond forming reactions (i.e. Wurtz reaction, acyloin condensation, etc.) are fundamental to organic synthesis. The majority of carbon-centered radicals undergo dimerization but these reactions are usually not atom economical or chemically selective increasing the costs for synthesis.
Carbon bond formations with SiGNa materials are able to be performed in both atom and process efficient syntheses in turn reducing cost to the end-user. The reaction conditions afford much cleaner products, safer reactive species, and milder conditions.
Highly loaded, free-flowing stabilized alkali metal powders with reactivity as high as the parent metal.
Highly loaded, atomically dispersed alkali metal powder (includes lithium) wtih more extensive reactivity than the parent metal.
Bottle-able solid powdery reagent loaded up to 10 mmol/g; storable under nitrogen with infinite shelf life; extended range of organolithium nucleophiles
Currently SiGNa is working on the next element in the alkali metal family, Lithium. A number of new discoveries have been made. Read More
