Description and features
Catonium BTPB (Butyltriphenylphosphonium Bromide) is a white to off-white powder, its chemical formula is C22H24BrP. BTPB is a quaternary phosphonium salt mainly used in organic synthesis as a wittig reagent and as a phase transfer catalyst in the production of fluoroelastomers, Epoxy Resins and Powder Coatings. This material is highly soluble in water and polarizable solvents.
Butyltriphenylphosphonium Bromide is also known as BTPB, BTPPB and TPBP-Br.
Compared to amines, imidazoles and quaternary ammonium salts CatOnium BTPB features considerable better latency and thermal stability. Further it offers a low odor, minimal color formation and controlled reactivity.
