Abstract: Tetraethylammonium  superoxide, generated in  situ  by the phase transfer reaction of potassium superoxide and tetraethylammonium bromide, brings about a clean cleavage of various anhydrides. particularly those with high molecular weight in dry dimethylformamide. As an outcome, succinic anhydride 1; glutaric anhydride 2; 3;3-dimethylglutaric anhydride 3;phthalic anhydride 4; diphenic anhydride 5; 1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-9-oxo-1 ,4-ethanonaphthalene-2,3-endo-dicarboxylic anhydride 6; 1,4,5,6,7,7-hexachloro-5-norbornene-2,3-dicarboxylic anhydride 7; endo-bicyclo [2.2.1] heptan-2-one-5,6- dicarboxylic  anhydride 8: cis-5 -norbornene-endo-2,3-dicarboxylic anhydride 9 and trans-1,2-cyclohexane dicarboxylic anhydride 10 have been transformed into their corresponding dicarboxylic acids in fairly good yields. The report demonstrates the applicability of tetraethylammonium bromide as a phase transfer catalyst for efficient superoxide studies
