Material: Sodium Triacetoxyborohydride is a mild and selective reducing agent, mainly used in the pharmaceutical industry. It is able to replace toxic sodium cyanoborohydride under most conditions. It is selective in reducing aldehydes to alcohols in the presence of ketones. STAB is also stable in anhydrous acids, which enables reductive amination of aldehydes and ketones. The advantage of STAB compared to sodium cyanoborohydride is evident. As STAB is non-toxic it is easier to handle and forms no toxic by-products, making the treatment of wastes after the reaction simpler and more cost effective.
