Lithium Aluminum Hydride LiAlH4 Carbonyl Reduction Reaction and Mechanism

Lithium Aluminum Hydride (LiAlH4) Reduction Tutorial Video by Leah4sci

Lithium Aluminum Hydride LiAlH4 is the stronger ‘common’ carbonyl reducing agent. In addition to reducing aldehydes and ketones like NaBH4, LiAlH4 will also reduce carboxylic acids and carboxyl derivatives. The video below shows you a molecule and reaction overview followed by the reduction mechanisms for LiAlH4 with various carbonyl compounds. (Watch on YouTube: LiAlH4¬†Reduction. Click […]
