Product Usage

  1. Identification of potassium ions

Sodium tetraphenylboron is a cheap and sensitive reagent for detecting potassium. In neutral, alkaline, or acetic acid solutions, sodium tetraphenylboron quantitatively reacts with potassium ions to form a white precipitate of potassium tetraphenylboron that is insoluble in water: K++[B (C6H5) 4] – → K [B (C6H5) 4] ↓

The detection limit of the reaction is 1 μ g. The minimum concentration of potassium ions is 2 μ G/mL. Ammonium ions, rubidium ions, and cesium ions also generate similar precipitates. Generally, ammonium ions need to be removed by calcination in advance (due to the instability of ammonium salts, they are easily decomposed during calcination), while rubidium and cesium ions can also be removed by precipitation method in advance.

Another commonly used reagent for identifying potassium ions is sodium cobalt nitrite, which can form yellow crystalline precipitates with potassium ions. Its main interfering ion is also ammonium ions.

  1. Organic synthesis

In acetonitrile solution, sodium tetraphenylboron reacts with acyl chloride and tertiary amine, and sodium chloride precipitates to obtain N-acyl quaternary ammonium salt:

RC (O) Cl+R3’N+NaBPh4 → [RC (O) NR3 ‘] [BPh4]+NaCl

Sodium tetraphenylboron can serve as a phenyl donor and undergo cross coupling with trifluoromethanesulfonic acid vinyl ester or aryl ester under palladium catalysis, generating aryl olefins or biphenyl derivatives with high yield.

  1. Others

Sodium tetraphenylboron has a high solubility in non-polar solvents and is easy to crystallize, which can be used to prepare and separate some organic metal complexes.
