Its a bit dramatic here! its not like it always bursts into flames!
Somebody help me out here - I added a link to tert-Butyllithium on the n-Butyllithium page, but it does not recognize this page. What's the deal? Does capitalization matter? ChemistHans 23:18, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
- Shouldn't the title of this page be Tert-butyllithium? --Vuo 09:00, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
Available as solutions of ethers?
I've edited this before, then reverted because I wasn't sure; the end of the article says "This compound and other alkyllithium compounds are known to be unstable in ether solvents", but the intro reads "tert-Butyllithium is readily available commercially as solutions of ethers or hydrocarbons". Someone more knowledgeable who can confirm or deny? DS Belgium (talk) 15:37, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
I believe the systematic name of this compound is (1,1-dimethylethyl)lithium, but I'm no chemist so I'll leave this here rather than edit it into the article.
