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.
