|Title of the idea:||Trimethoxy sodium tert butoxide – Super base?|
|Author of the idea:||Ramesha|
|Email of the email@example.com|
|Key words for search:||Dimethyl carbonate, sodium methoxide, super base|
|Explain briefly the idea||
Sodium methoxide can theoretically react with dimethyl carbonate to give Tri-methoxy sodium tert butoxide. Because of the 3 electron releasing inductive effect of oxygen, this could be a SUPER BASE!. No data on this compound so far!
|Why do you think this idea will work?||In organic chemistry|
|Do you have any experimental proof?||No. But seen exothermic reaction when dimethyl carbonate is mixed with sodium methoxide!|
|Where it is useful?||Academic|
|Do you plan to work on this idea in near future?||Yes|
|Interested in collaboration?||Yes|
|Nature of idea:||Theoretical|
