Definition of the noun Superbase

What does Superbase mean as a name of something?


  1. [chemistry] any compound having a very high basicity


  1. Superbase: In chemistry, a superbase is an extremely strong base, that is a compound that has a high affinity for protons. The hydroxide ion is the strongest base possible in aqueous solutions, but bases exist with much greater strengths than can exist in water. Such bases are valuable in organic synthesis and are fundamental to physical organic chemistry. Superbases have been described and used since the 1850s. Reactions involving superbases often require special techniques since they are destroyed by water and atmospheric carbon dioxide as well as oxygen. Inert atmosphere techniques and low temperatures minimize these side reactions. Superbases also have a corrosive effect.
    • also known as 超强碱
