Complex metal hydrides are widely used in organic synthesis for various reasons:
- miscellaneous applications,
- high selectivity,
- high yield of pure products.
Albemarle is the main supplier of the most powerful and versatile complex metal hydride for reductions – lithium aluminum hydride.
Lithium aluminum hydride (LAH), Lithium triethylborohydride (LTEBH), Lithium borohydride (LiBH4), Lithium tri-tertbutoxy-aluminumhydride (LTTBA)
As shown above, other available reducing agents are lithium triethylborohydride (LTEBH), lithium borohydride (LiBH4), and the bulky and highly selective reagent lithium tri-tertbutoxy-aluminumhydride (LTTBA).
