Synonym: Lithium hydroborate, Lithium tetrahydroborate
CAS Number 16949-15-8 | MDL Number MFCD00011088 | EC Number 241-021-7
Lithium borohydride is a strong reducing agent. In mixtures of methanol and diethyl ether, it is able to reduce esters to alcohols and primary amides to amines. Due to its higher chemoselectivity, the usage of this product is particularly advantageous in some preparations. LiBH4 is commonly used to reduce aldehydes, ketones esters, lactones, and epoxides. One more application of this product is the preparation of other borohydrides. See links below
