In conclusion, the experiment was highly successful in reducing the ketone group of 2-methylcyclohexanone to an alcohol group using sodium borohydride it was determined that in this scenario, the thermodynamic product is generously favored. Sodium borohydride is a salt which is made up of a sodium cation (na+) and a borohydride anion (bh4-) the sodium ion plays no important role in the reaction, so we will ignore it (ions like sodium and potassium are seldom directly involved in reactions.

Describes reduction of the carbonyl group of aldehydes and ketones using three different reagents: sodium borohydride, lithium aluminum hydride, and hydrogen gas together with a metal catalyst.
Purpose in this laboratory we will use sodium borohydride as a reducing agent to convert a ketone to a 2° alcohol in this reaction the starting material (benzil) is difunctional, giving rise to a product (hydrobenzoin) with two alcohol groups. A simple and convenient procedure enables the reductive alkylation of primary and secondary amines and n,n-dimethylation of amino acids using sodium borohydride as reducing agent in 2,2,2- trifluoroethanol without use of a catalyst or any other additive. Borohydride reduction of ketones: stereochemistry of estrone reduction required reading: chapter 19 in organic chemistry by g marc loudon (4th ed 2002, oxford university press) pay special attention to section 198 objective: in this experiment you will carry out the reduction of a ketone to an alcohol using sodium borohydride you will. Reduction of aldehydes and ketones using nabh 4 either nabh 4 (sodium borohydride) or lialh 4 (lithium aluminum hydride) notice that although these reactions achieve the same overall result, the conditions for the reactions are only when the desired reduction reaction is complete pauling electronegativity boron 204 aluminum 161. Using sodium tetrahydridoborate (sodium borohydride) sodium tetrahydridoborate is a more gentle (and therefore safer) reagent than lithium tetrahydridoaluminate it can be used in solution in alcohols or even solution in water - provided the solution is alkaline.
Using sodium borohydride supported in silica gel and microwave irradiation gave the corresponding alcohols in high yields, with reduced reaction time and less waste compared to. Exp’t 134 borohydride reduction of a ketone: hydrobenzoin from benzil fromk l williamson, macroscale and microscale organic experiments, 2nd ed 1994, houghton mifflin, boston revised 10/9/00 prelab questions: compare the reductive abilities of lithium aluminum hydride with those of sodium borohydride. The stereochemistry of hydride reductions by william g dauben, gerhard j fonken and donald s noyce unhindered ketone, the predominant product in the aluminum hydride reduces the carbonyl while sodium borohydride gives no reduction and h b henbest, €3 r h jones,.
The reaction between a ketone and sodium borohydride is analogous reduction of carboxylic acids the carbonyl carbon of a carboxylic acid is even more electrophilic than the. As these examples illustrate, reduction of an aldehyde gives a primary alcohol, and reduction of a ketone gives a secondary alcohol lithium aluminum hydride is one of the most useful reducing agents in organic chemistry sodium borohydride is also a much less hazardous reagent than lithium aluminum hydride.
