General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for energy efficiency. Find details here.

Application

Nanocrystalline superlattices in gold colloid solution have been prepared by ligand-induction using AuCl3 reduced with sodium borohydride. Nucleophilic addition of hydride ion from sodium borohydride is an inexpensive alternative method for the Baylis-Hillman reaction to form [E]-a-methylcinnamic acids. A reductant solution composed of NaBH4 and NaOH was used to form mercury cold vapor. NaBH4 may be used to generate hydrogen by catalytic hydrolysis.

An article about metal borohydrides as hydrogen storage materials

Single molecule electronics is the endeavour of constructing electronic circuitry with single molecules as the fundamental building block.

Synthesis of noble-metal nanostructures with various morphologies can be achieved by the polyol method. Reaction parameters could be combined to maneuver the twin structure of seeds and the facets of the seed surface.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
