General description

L-Selectride® is an air and water sensitive solution mainly used as a bulky stereoselective hydride reducing agent.

Application

L-Selectride solution may be used in the O-demethylation and N-demethylation of opium alkaloids and their derivatives.
L-Selectride® can be used as a reagent for:
  • The stereoselective reduction of ketone to alcohol.
  • The selective demethylation of tert alcohol.

  • Reducing agent

Reagent for:
  • Enantioselective synthesis of a-amino acids via reduction of N-tert-butanesulfinyl ketimine esters
  • Diastereoselective reduction reactions
  • Hydride reduction of the Danishefsky pyranones
  • Asymmetric reductive aldol reaction of enones with a-alkoxy aldehydes
  • Synthesis of alkanols by carbonylation reactions
