General description

Sodium butyrate is the sodium salt form of butyric acid. It is a a natural compound known to inhibit tumor-cell growth and its biological activity in a human breast-cancer cell line (MCF7) was investigated. Sodium butyrate may be an effective drug for the treatment of human spinal muscular atrophy patients.

Application

Sodium butyrate can be used as a reactant to prepare butanal by reduction using 9-borabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane (9-BBN) in THF. It is also converted into butanal borane and pyridinium chlorochromate by the reductive oxidation reaction. Sodium butyrate is reacted with different alcohols to yield esters by Mitsunobu reaction using ionic liquid-based chloroiminium reagent.
