Solid potassium tertbutoxide easily absorb moisture. Soluble in tertiary butyl alcohol, often used for halogenated hydrocarbon dehydrohalogenation reaction, and its solution is stable. Exposure to the air decomposition. In water is decomposed into potassium hydroxide and tertiary butyl alcohol. By tertiary butyl alcohol and potassium metal reaction, decompression evaporation to tertiary butyl alcohol system. Strong alkaline condensing agent, its basic a methanol sodium, sodium ethylate strong. Widely used in organic synthesis of condensation, rearrangement and ring opening reaction, general use a tertiary butyl alcohol solution.
Solid potassium tertbutoxide risk properties: 4.1 class for flammable Solid, spontaneous combustion items and meet wet flammable items.
