Descripción general

Lithium aluminum anhydride is effective as a selective reducing agent.[1]The anhydride may be prepared by reacting lithium hydride with aluminum chloride.[2] It is soluble in ether[3] and it can reduce carboxyl group to primary alcohol group with great ease.[2] Other organic compounds that can be reduced by lithium aluminum hydride are aldehydes, ketones, acid chlorides, acid anhydrides,[3] halides, quinones, nitrogen compounds.[4]
