Chemical Synthesis

BH3 THF Solutions

As part of our ongoing commitment to safety, Sigma-Aldrich now introduces a NIMBA-stabilized BH3-THF solution. This solution has a practical advantage in that all pack sizes offered (800 mL, 1L, 8L, 18L, and bulk) meet Self-Accelerated Decomposition Temperature (SADT) thresholds required for safe shipment at room temperature, while demonstrating excellent reactivity and selectivity.
