Applications
  1. n-Butyl Lithium is a highly versatile reagent in organic synthesis, especially in the synthesis of pharmaceutical intermediates
  2. It is used as an initiator in the anionic polymerization of conjugated dienes like butadiene, isoprene and vinyl aromatic compounds like styrene to produce wide variety of useful rubber and plastic goods.
  3. n-Butyl Lithium is used in organic synthesis as a butylating agent (addition and in halogen-metal and hydrogen-metal exchange reactions (Metalations or Lithiations)

* Alkyl-lithium compounds are stored under inert gas for safety reasons and alsoto prevent loss of activity
