-bis(trimethylsilyl)amine or N
-bis(trimethylsilyl)prop-2-en-1-amine (AHMDS) can be used as a nucleophilic reagent to prepare:
- Complex bicyclic scaffolds by reacting with aryl aldehydes via imine formation followed by efficient multicomponent reactions.
- Dithiasuccinoyl (Dts) heterocycle by reacting with bisthiocarbamoyl chloride.
- Allyl selenide by reacting with aryl selenium salt in the presence of a ruthenium catalyst; Allyl selenide is utilized as a key intermediate in organic synthesis.
AHMDS can also be used as a reagent in hydrosilylation and hydroboration reaction.
It may be also used as an electrolyte additive.
