Silver Trifluoromethanesulfonate ( Silver Triflate )

Silver trifluoromethanesulfonate, or silver triflate is the triflate (CF3SO3-) salt of Ag+. It is a colorless or white solid that dissolves in water, as well as organic solvents, including benzene. The reagent is utilized in the production of organic triflates, as well as inorganic triflates.

Trifluoromethanesulfonate is a weakly coordinating anion, silver trifluoromethanesulfonate is useful as a halide abstraction reagent.

Reactive trifling agent, and source of silver ions that are soluble and useful to form electrophilic onium species and for the stimulation of Friedel-Crafts, nucleophile alkene cyclization or esterification processes).

Olefins are produced from secondary phosphates and Thiophosphates. With this reagent, the etherification process of alcohols using primary alkyl halides can be done under mild conditions.

Utilized to make the cationic rhodium catalysts derived from complexes of color rhodium to hydrophosphinate Acetylenes. It can also be used as a catalyst in the preparation of silyl-ethers through hydrosilylation of aldehydes.
