Sodium borohydride

Sodium borohydride (NaBH4) is a white crystalline powder with a wide range of uses in organic chemistry, including pharmaceutical synthesis, production of fine chemicals and synthetic materials. Sodium borohydride is relatively stable when stored and handled correctly, and Sodium borohydride is usually stored in dry, airtight containers or under an inert atmosphere.

About Organic Intermediates

Organic intermediates are key components that play a role in the synthesis of complex compounds. They play an important role in organic synthesis and are starting materials or precursors for the production of final products.
A variety of organic intermediates (simple starting materials) can be converted into more complex structures through a series of chemical reactions. The resulting structures can then be further manipulated to produce the desired end products.
There is a wide variety of organic intermediates with different structures and properties that can be used to synthesise different compounds. Some commonly used organic intermediates include alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, acids, esters, amines, and halides.
Organic intermediates offer chemists the possibility of synthesising complex molecules. They facilitate the synthesis of new drugs, the development of new materials, and the advancement of the chemical industry.

What does sodium borohydride reduce
