Potassium borohydride (KBH4) is an inorganic chemical with unique reducing power that is used in chemical synthesis. Whereas it easily generates a hydrogen atom quintessential for reduction processes, the borohydride reacts violently with water. It is toxic by ingestion. KBH4 finds large consumption in agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, and intermediates.
KBH4 is conveniently produced by reaction of caustic potash with sodium borohydride.
Applications in Pharma
|Potassium borohydride finds application in production of many APIs including:|
Applications in Agrochemicals
|The borohydride is further employed in synthesis of agrochemicals such as:|
Applications in Intermediates
For its excellent reduction prowess, the molecule converts organics acids, aldehydes, and ketones to corresponding alcohols, whereby a large array of intermediates can be produced. Besides, the borohydride is found to have usage in production of diethylamine borane, dimethylamine borane, and sodium hydrosulphite.

Linoleic acid is a polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid. It is a colorless liquid that is virtually insoluble in water but soluble in many organic solvents. It typically occurs in nature as a triglyceride (ester of glycerin) rather than as a free fatty acid.
Ethyl Linoleate belongs to the chemical class of fatty acids, which are organic compounds with one or more long hydrocarbon chains. These molecules are characterized by having two carbons atoms with a double bond between them.
2-Phenylethylamine is a water-soluble amine with a fishy odor. It is often referred to simply as “phenethylamine”, but that can also be interpreted as 1-phenylethylamine.
4-Amino-1,2,4-triazole is an organic solid belonging to the heterocyclic category of compounds. By virtue of presence of 3 nitrogen atoms, the molecule is biologically active and thus acts as antimicrobial and antifungal agent.
4’-Cyanoacetophenone is an organic solid. It belongs to cyclic nitriles category. The presence of cyano group makes the compound reactive to form various intermediates and a few APIs. In organics syntheses, it also used as a catalyst.
3- Bromothianisole is a brominated aromatic compound with an active methyl thio group for oxidation. It has many applications in pharmaceutical and biotech industries as an intermediate for the synthesis of various organic compounds
Dichloroacetyl chloride, acronymed DCAC, is an organic solvent that belongs to the category of acid chlorides. Its uses include manufacture of APIs, agrochemicals, and a series of intermediates. It is also applied in synthesis of biologically active compounds.
