Description

Application

VenPure® SF (Sodium borohydride powder) is a mild reducing agent used in the reduction of aldehydes and ketones to their corresponding alcohols. It is generally inert to other functional groups such as epoxides, esters, nitriles and lactones. Along with carboxylic acid, it forms acyloxyborohydride, which is a versatile reducing agent to reduce indoles, quinolones, imines, enamines, oximes and enamides.
