General information

(Lewis) Acids

Acids are commonly used in synthesis protocols for processing reactions. In addition, acids (usually Lewis acids) can also serve as catalysts for various reactions. The removal of the Boc protecting group shown here is formally catalysed by the acids used (in this case, trifluoroacetic acid). In addition to conventional inorganic acids, Carl ROTH can supply other acids and Lewis acids commonly used in organic synthesis.
