Application

Nanocrystalline superlattices in gold colloid solution have been prepared by ligand-induction using AuCl3 reduced with sodium borohydride. Nucleophilic addition of hydride ion from sodium borohydride is an inexpensive alternative method for the Baylis-Hillman reaction to form [E]-a-methylcinnamic acids. A reductant solution composed of NaBH4 and NaOH was used to form mercury cold vapor. NaBH4 may be used to generate hydrogen by catalytic hydrolysis.
