I have a 25-gram bottle of solid LDA (lithium diisopropylamide), factory sealed. I'm going to setup an aldol reaction with it, but I don't know how to organize work properly.
I think of quickly weighing some amount into a flask flushed with argon and flushing the bottle with argon for storage. Then I'll dissolve the LDA in the flask in THF and use this solution. The only concern is stability of the rest of LDA in bottle.
If you have some ideas how to organize it better, please share.
