PTSA or pTsOH or Tosylic acid (TsOH) is white solid organic compound, that is soluble in water, alcohols, and other polar organic solvents. The group is known as the tosyl group and is often abbreviated as Ts or Tos.
TsOH is about one million times stronger than benzoic acid. It is one of the few strong acids that is solid and hence conveniently weighed. It is available both in crystalline form as well as a solution and has a wide range of applications.

PTSA is widely used as a catalyst and as an intermediate in a variety of applications such as:
|A catalyst in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, polymerization stabilizer, paint intermediates, cross linking reactions and resin curing agent. It is also a commonly used acid catalyst in organic synthesis.|
|As an intermediate in fine chemicals, dyestuffs & pigments.|
|As a curing agent in thermosetting resin systems, varnishes, acrylic resins, etc.|
|As a hydrotropic coupling agent & a wetting agent in esterification / condensation / acetylation / polymerization / alkylation / hydrolysis / dehydration.|
|It is comparable in strength to mineral acids such as sulphuric acid but is especially suitable for organic reactions where an inorganic, mineral acid could cause charring, oxidation or an unwanted chemical reaction.|

4-Methoxypyridine, a molecule with ether function, is a reactive base. Its nitrogen atom is activated by the methoxy group. It renders the molecule active and thus 4-methoxypyrimidine participates in many chemical processes. Its uses are in intermediates, in synthesis of biologically active moieties, and in proteomic research.
Ammonium acetate is a crystalline white solid with a somewhat acetous odour. It is also called the spirit of Mindererus in its aqueous form or Azanium acetate. It is widely used in chemical analysis, in preserving foods, and in pharmaceuticals. It is often used to prepare buffer solutions as it is made up of a weak base and a weak acid combined together.
Dimethylthiocarbamoyl Chloride is an organosulfur compound, a yellow solid. It is often encountered as a yellow syrup. It is a key reagent in the synthesis of arylthiols via the Newman-Kwart rearrangement.
Tetrafluorobenzyl bromide (TFBB), by virtue of presence of 5 fluorine atoms, is a strong electrophile and hence readily combines with nucleophiles. This property results in its extensive usage in derivatization gas chromatography. Commercially, PFBB is applied to make the corresponding alcohol and chloride.
Ashwagandha also known as Withania somnifera, Winter cherry, or Indian Ginseng. Ashwagandha, one of the most valuable herbs in the Ayurvedic medical system dating back more than 3,000 years. Because of its vast area of application, ayurvedic physicians have used it extensively in curing people from their ailments.
4-(Dimethylamino)pyridine (DMAP) is an efficient and versatile acylation catalyst. Besides, it find uses in other chemical reactions as well as in production of APIs, agrochemicals, and intermediates.
L-Alpha glycerylphosphorylcholine (alpha-GPC or choline alfoscerate) is a choline-containing phospholipid. When ingested, alpha-GPC is metabolized into choline and glycerol-1-phosphate. Choline is a precursor of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter involved in memory, attention, and skeletal muscle contraction.
3,3,3-Trifluoropropanol is a colorless liquid that is consumed in manufacture of value-added intermediates. This apart, the halogenated alcohol is also cited to have applications in other industry verticals. It also finds uses in proteomic research and in agrochemicals.
