N,O-Bis(trimethylsilyl) acetamide (BSA) is a silylation reagent used to form stable trimethylsilyl (TMS) derivatives that are volatile. CovaChem's BSA is GC and GC/MS derivatization grade, and is commonly used for the derivatization of polar functional groups, such as carboxylic acids, phenols, steroids, amines, alcohols, and alkaloids and amides. This reagent is ideally suited to form derivatives with smaller molecules. .
