Application

Reactant or reagent for:
  • The preparation of thermoplastic polyester polyamides from oleic acid
  • Lithium-polymer batteries
  • Hydrodefluorination of gem-difluoromethylene derivatives
  • Asymmetric aldol reactions
  • Synthesis of Li-Al-N-H composites with hydrogen absorption / desorption properties

LAH is a powerful reducing agent for many different reduction reactions such as that of ketones to alcohols

A series of new benzoxazepine derivatives substituted with different alkoxy and aryloxy group were synthesized comprising synthetic steps of Mitsunobu reaction, lithium aluminum hydride (LAH) reduction, followed by debenzylation and finally intramolecular Mitsunobu cyclization. The new benzoxazepines specifically inhibited growth
