Use of Methanesulfonic acid

Posted in General | 10:37

Methanesulfonic acid is used as an acid catalyst in organic reactions because it is a non-volatile, strong acid that is soluble in organic solvents. Methanesulfonic acid is convenient for industrial applications because it is liquid at ambient temperature, while the closely related p-toluenesulfonic acid (PTSA) is solid. However, in a laboratory setting, solid PTSA is more convenient. Methanesulfonic Acid can be used as solvent, catalyst of alkylation, esterification and polymerization etc., 99% MSA mainly used in pharmaceutical industry, while 70% MSA mainly used in electric plating and other electronic industry. It also can be used in the generation of borane (BH3) by reacting methanesulfonic acid with NaBH4 in an aprotic solvent such as THF or DMS, the complex of BH3 and the solvent is formed. Methanesulfonic acid is considered a particularly suitable supporting electrolyte for electrochemical applications, were stands as an environmentally friendly alternative to other acid electrolytes used in plating processes. Methanesulfonic acid is also the electrolyte of choice in zinc-cerium (see cerium(III) methanesulfonate) and lead-acid (methanesulfonate) flow batteries.
