Osmium tetroxide is widely used to oxidise alkenes to the vicinal diols, adding two hydroxyl groups at the same side (syn addition). It is also used in catalytic amounts in the Sharpless oxyamination to give vicinal amino-alcohols. Osmium tetroxide is also a widely used staining agent used in transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to provide contrast to the image.
