General description

Diisobutylaluminum hydride solution is a strong reducing agent used to convert arylpropiolate esters to their propargyl alcohols.

Diisobutylaluminum hydride reducing agent is commonly used for the reduction of an ester to aldehyde.

Application

Diisobutylaluminum hydride solution (25 wt. % in toluene) has been used for the reduction of imides:
  • N

  • -(cis-2-Vinylcyclohexyl)succinimide to 1-(cis-2-vinylcyclohexyl)-5-hydroxy-2-pyrrolidinone
  • N-(But-4-en-1-y1)-2(E)-(carbethoxymethylidene)-5-oxo-pyrrolidine to N-(but-4-en-1-yl)- 2(E)-(carbethoxymethylidene)-5-hydroxypyrrolidine
  • N-(Hept-1-en-4-y1)-2(E)-(carbethoxymethylidene)-5-oxo-pyrrolidine to N-(hept-1-en-4-y1)-2(E)-(carbethoxymethylidene)-5-hydroxypyrrolidine
  • N-(cis-2-Vinylcyclohexyl)-2-(carbethoxymethylidene)-5-oxopyrrolidine to rel-(3aR,SS,5aS,SaR)-1( E)-(carbethoxymethylidene)-5-(formyloxy)dodecahydropyrrolo[1,2-a]quinoline

Used in Pd-catalyzed reductive debromination of secondary alkyl bromides. O-Debenzylation and ring opening of perbenzylated furanosides. Convenient in situ generation of HZrCp2Cl from ZrCp2Cl2 and DIBAL-H.

Packaging

The 25 g Sure/Seal bottle is recommended as a single-use bottle. Repeated punctures will likely result in decreased performance of product.
