Lithium Bromide, typ. 30 % solution in THF (typ. 4.1 M)
The LiBr/THF solution was developed mainly for application in organic synthesis, especially as an additive for organometallic transformations. Lithium salts can alter the selectivity and kinetics of organometallic conversions. In combination with transition metal salts an efficient catalyst for cross-coupling reactions can be formed.
