• solvent
  • TAME can be used as a safe reaction medium (e.g. condensation reactions, coupling reactions, such as Grignard reactions and Suzuki reactions, as well as metal hydride reductions) and as an extraction solvent to replace dichloromethane, aromatics, and other ethers. (wikipedia.org)
  • Similar to other glycol ethers, it is used as a carrier/solvent in printing/writing inks. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is also used as a solvent in academic research, although it is less commonly used than diethyl ether. (wikipedia.org)
  • mtbe
  • MTBE is extensively used in industry as a safer alternative to diethyl ether (which is commonly used in academic research) as the tert-butyl group prevents MTBE from forming potentially explosive peroxides. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although an ether, MTBE is a poor Lewis base and does not support formation of Grignard reagents. (wikipedia.org)
  • alkyl
  • It is the simplest chemical that contains both an alkene group and an alkyl group with an ether linkage. (wikipedia.org)
  • ROR + BBr3 → RO+(−BBr3)R → ROBBr2 + RBr Aryl methyl ethers (as well as activated primary alkyl ethers), on the other hand are dealkylated through a bimolecular mechanism involving two BBr3-ether adducts. (wikipedia.org)
  • Boron tribromide also mediates the dealkylation of aryl alkyl ethers, for example demethylation of 3,4-dimethoxystyrene into 3,4-dihydroxystyrene. (wikipedia.org)
  • Synthesis
  • ISBN 0-471-16019-9 Synthesis of Alpha-Halo Ethers from Symmetric Acetals and In Situ Methoxymethylation of an Alcohol, Organic Syntheses, Vol. 84, No. 102 (2007) R.J. Linderman, M. Jaber, B.D. Griedel, J. Org. (wikipedia.org)
  • Chemical
  • It is sold by Dow Chemical under the name Dowanol PMA and by Shell Chemical under the name methyl proxitol acetate. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the chemical sciences, methylation denotes the addition of a methyl group on a substrate, or the substitution of an atom (or group) by a methyl group. (wikipedia.org)
  • group
  • Methylation is a form of alkylation, with a methyl group, rather than a larger carbon chain, replacing a hydrogen atom. (wikipedia.org)
  • The overall reaction transforms 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (N5-MeTHF) into tetrahydrofolate (THF) while transferring a methyl group to Hcy to form Met. (wikipedia.org)
  • The enzyme is initially primed into a reactive state by the transfer of a methyl group from N5-MeTHF to Co(I) in enzyme-bound cobalamin (Cob), forming methyl-cobalamin(Me-Cob) that now contains Me-Co(III) and activating the enzyme. (wikipedia.org)
  • The activated methyl group is transferred from Me-Cob to the Hcy thiolate, which regenerates Co(I) in Cob, and Met is released from the enzyme. (wikipedia.org)
  • production
  • It is an excellent demethylating or dealkylating agent for the cleavage of ethers, also with subsequent cyclization, often in the production of pharmaceuticals. (wikipedia.org)
